I am sorry that I and my family (Gail, Allen,Peter) will not be able to attend your Mom’s Celebration of Life. We would have liked to be there. Distance makes it harder for relatives to get together it seems. Our thoughts are with all of you during this time. We will surely miss your Mom.
Please accept my deepest condolences on the death of your Mom. She was a very special person! You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Mother Mary was very special to me. Mother Mary was my foster mother, but much more than that. She gave me confidence when I had none, get gave me courage when I had none, she made me believe in myself, and she gave me hope for my future. Even when Mary was going through such hardship when Rod was in the hospital, Mary told me when I went back home that her home was always open for me and she would always be there if I needed her. She had a profound effect on me, and the reason why I was able to reach higher than I would have if I had not had Mary. Mary you can now soar — there is no body to slow you down. I know you will be watching over all of us. Rest in Peace – you have more than earned it! With all of my Love.
Sincere sympathies to all Mary’s family. Many good memories of a very special lady.
From all of the Rice Family.
