  1. Harry and Patrick, we will always carry our fond memories of Mary in our hearts. When we think of her we will always remember her loving heart, her beloved lilacs, her love of her cats, and ours, her kindness and her generosity. Just know we here, right next door, ready to help and support you in any way you need.

  2. Our family has so many wonderful memories of Mary. She was such a generous and kind person and really enjoyed watching our children grow up. I remember how excited she was when we moved in next door over 15 years ago. She always took such an interest in our family. She remembered each of our children’s birthdays, and would give the children special treats on holidays. She would call us up just to see how we were doing and get family updates. Our family will always cherish the years we lived next door to your family and we will always fondly remember Mary with love. She will greatly be missed. Our prayers are with you Harry and Patrick. Love, The Vercouteren Family
