I am so sorry to hear about Mary. I last saw her at La Loma while I was also there in Rehab after my spinal surgery. I had lunch with Mary and Dick a few times while there. I first met Mary at PVNGS where we both worked for APS in the Construction Office. We became good friends and I have great memories of her. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.
