O O'D on May 9, 2021

Dear Pat and Arlene, Mary will be seen by me in my minds eye sitting there at the St Vincent dePaul meeting and in the end seat checking in the people picking up their food . A person who has never, ever complained of her condition, always looked up and ahead especially when preparing for a trip to the beach in the summer and trips to Cape May. I will miss her at those sessions. She was one special person. Our God is taking care of her now. Frank and Lee O'Donnell
