    Thank you Aunt Mar for all the beautiful and wonderful memories you gave me growing up. Forever in my thoughts. Forever in my heart. I love you always.

  2. Mary Chance says:

    With deepest sympathies I want to express my sadness of your loss of Mar. This had been a difficult journey for both of you but she is not at total peace and perfect health. Her spirit will continue your own walk through life. May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guide you and bring you comfort. Now it’s labor unto rest for you before you begin again.

    With deepest regrets,
    Mary Chance (Sharon’s friend)
