I was sorry to learn about the passing of Mary. She was actually my aunt--though I never met her. Her father was my grandfather.

I met Mary as an assistant computer instructor in a computer class at Forever Learning. I had the privilege of learning piano with Mary at Forever Learning. Our entire class loved her as she was so patient, kind, and encouraging. Mary was a blessing and inspiration to everyone she met. We loved her and our prayers are with you. I am so sorry that I can't be there to share with you. Alice Leslie Miller

Mary and I taught computers at Leighton Center and she coached for my computer Greeting Card class at Leighton and at Forever Learning. We all had a lot of fun and we missed her when she moved south. She was a sweet person and she is missed. Christine Murdock
