    Mary, you were one in a million zillion! Your strength, cunning, and fortitude was matched only by your grace, dignity, and quiet super-hero-ness. I am lucky to have known you and to still know your amazing and talented family. You and Elene have a good time up there! Sing songs, tell stories, drink coffee, and laugh as hard as you want. Know you will always be loved.
