Mary was a faithful Christian woman. She talked to God each day and didn't stop until her Alzheimer's caused her to forget how. She loved her family and wanted only the best for each one. That's what we do. Always honor your momma because too soon you'll be in our place. With heavy hearts we give her back to God, but we thank Him for giving us such a beautiful soul to share our lives with.
