To the family: I am very sorry for who you have lost. She was definitely the strongest branch on the family tree. Tio George, I know your heart is in pain and has a huge void that will never be filled like Tia Mary could. Know that one day you will be with her again. Tia Mary, I am happy for your mind, body, and soul. That they are no longer in pain. You're now free. I know you will be watching over your family. I know you had the greatest love for them all. As adults, people tend to see each other less an less. Here are the things I will always remember you. You had the best smile, you loved to sing and dance. Your favorite color was red. You had a wicked sense of humor. You're family was everything, mess with them and, you were a force to be reckoned with. You had a very loving g heart. I will miss you.
