    I still miss seeing that smiling face. So glad I got to be a part of you and your family’s lives. It’s not the same around here without you. Rest in peace sweet lady. Much love

  • Pam Adams & Molly

    Although our time together was short it seemed like we’d known each other for years. We had such great times sitting out in the back yard. Molly and I looked forward to them when I wasn’t on the road. And I just know Molly greeted you with a tennis ball. Til we meet again, sweet lady.

    Mary Lee was the cousin I always wanted when we were kids. I was so excited when Mary Lee and Larry moved to the Skagit. What fun we had camping with all the various relatives. The best time of all was sleeping in the hay of the barn!!
    I am so sad for all Mary’s family that loved her and cared for her. I wish that we could have spent more time together as old ladies.

  • Ella Jean

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Mary Lee as a young wife and mother…always so pretty and sweet. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during your grief.
