I'm so sorry to be reading of Mary Ann's passing. I haven't seen her since I was a teen but I have many fond memories of her, she was always ALWAYS kind to me in a world of turmoil. Truly one of the good ones!

I'll see you on the other side sweet lady! ❤️

Gram was always the life of the party. Her brightly colored clothes and sparkly earrings worn on the regular. And she could cook and bake like no one's business. She loved her family so much. She will be dearly missed.

Mom loved the Oregon Coast, driving anywhere in her car, a really good Americano and chocolate pudding. She loved a good crossword puzzle, a little HGTV and her family, even those of us with "warts."
