    My condolences to everyone who knew my sister Mary…she is a powerful and faithful believer in Jesus, wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother. She is the best sister a Brother could ever ask for… she has a smile that can light up the room… her faith in Jesus made her the person is and I can’t wait to see her again.

      I’m an Oasis volunteer who had the pleasure to get to know Mary. She was a pleasure to help but her gifts to us at the program were unbound. She will always be a gift to myself for knowing her. Blessings to you,her family.
