  • Mary has been a loving friend for many years. We met at Fitness and always enjoyed our tea and conversations after class. We shared our family trials and tribulations, sometimes cried a little but always left feeling better to have shared our concerns, not to mention a little gossip! Our dinner dates with Mary and Al always were enjoyable, not to mention who would pick up the bill! Then I was introduced to her relaxing tea, Jim Bean Honey, that was our Christmas treat or should say my husbands.
    She’ll always be in my prayers. Love you Rachel
