    So sorry to hear about Mary Pat, Mary Pat and I always had fun together as little cousins. One of our most fun things to do was to go to Clanton’s grocery on Center St. My favorite memory of Mary Pat was her amazing laugh. Sincere blessings to Mary’s family.

    Wilwerding Family, we were saddened to hear the news about Mary. She was a wonderful person to our family during our time at Our Lady of Lourdes and thereafter. May she rest in peace.

    Mary was such a lovely, kind soul and I loved her dearly. No one can prepare you for the death of a loved one, even when it is expected. To all who loved Mary, take comfort in knowing that she is now resting in the arms of our Lord and running happily through the golden fields of heaven.
