I couldn't let today pass without writing a post about my "kind" friend Mary. This morning we gathered to say our good-byes to her.
Cheerful and smiling and soft spoken are what I remember about her instantly. There are many things I could say about Mary, those of us who knew her are likely feeling the same as I do today. We are sad to see you leave all of us, though we realize you are at peace.
You have fought through a difficult time and I so admire your fight!
So I will remember her smiling Irish face, her sweetness, her thoughtfulness and so many other moments of laughing with friends.
In the obituary from the paper was a quote that she frequently used:
"If you have a choice to be right or be kind ... always be kind."
And you were Mary and I love you for that! Will miss friend.
