Aunt Mary was always such a loving and caring person. I really appreciated how she always made me feel welcome and part of the family even though I may have been uncomfortable due too how I was raised away from the Carr family. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to attend her services due to my recent bad health but please know I was there is spirit!! Our family is always in my thoughts and prayers!! Love you all !!!
