Gary and Rich, sending my sincere sympathies on your Mom's passing. 96 is an awesome run and I pray that her later years were good to her. The pictures posted are lovely and I will always remember her great smile and laugh. Mary was always laughing! ( I forgot that she shared her birthday with my twin sisters. ) May your Mom rest in eternal peace and happiness with your Dad. Sending love, hugs and prayers to comfort you at this sad time. Fondly, Sandra (Roselle) Hall

If I close my eyes I can hear her laugh. She always made you feel as if there was nobody more special. I simply Loved her and Uncle Ange too. Their visits were like holidays and oh how we looked forward to them. As sad as I am, thinking of them together again makes me smile. Please know I hold all of you in my heart. Sending so much Love, prayers and strength to all of you. ❤️ Colleen Burns Brown

We are unable to attend the service for Aunt Mary but her infectious laugh and warm, bright smile will be forever in our memories of her. She will be missed by all of her "Lee Family". Our prayers to Richard, Gary and Laurie. We take comfort knowing she was welcomed by the many loved ones that have gone before her, especially her love, Uncle Ange. Jane and Scott LePrevost
