    Mary was a true friend and many people's guardian angel. She watched over all of our homes on her mail route, always asking, HOW YOU DOING, YOU BE CAREFUL, IF YOU NEED ANYTHING LET ME KNOW. My
    husband was paralyzed he was stuck in the dirt in his power wheelchair, I was at my mothers. Mary pulled him out gently and went on her way. I had both knees replaced, she and I had signals with the
    drapes and the front light. She bought special bags at Kmart so she could hang my mail on the doorknob. RIP my dear friend Mary. God Bless You and your family. I will miss you forever.
