You were always a very special person to me, your kids as well as your grandkids. I know we will all miss you but I believe that you are in a happier place now.
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom, and grandmother. We were neighbors for a very long time. We played together for many of those years and I quickly learned what a caring family she has. My love goes to each of you. It will be a different place without her and her special family around here.

I am going to miss my sweet Mary. I loved going across the hall and talking to her, the pictures she would make for me, and hearing her stories. Like so many others in the building I have never seen such a devoted family. I will miss your smiling friendly faces as well. We all mourn her passing but are grateful she is in her forever home.

My days will never be the same. Until we meet again. Love Always
