Sorry to hear about her passing. I didn't know her, but I remember her from passing by in the halls and other social events we all got together for. She always had a great personality. She is one of GOD's angels now. R.I.P.

I am so happy to see that there is a place on this site to remember those very special people who were once with us. "Gone but not Forgotten"! Thank you for those of you have posted already!

I made a website in honor of Mary because i believe she was just too special to be forgotten.

I am honored to say she was my best friend and was her #1 fan. She just loved loved loved and had energy that we could all only wish for. She had many accomplishments and many wonderful traits. I share them on my blog as they come to me, along with connections through her children and many other signs.

You are welcome to visit it and post a comment where you may feel touched! You are also welcome to e-mail me if you have something to share with me. I love being able to post those kind of blogs "Memories of Mary". I've had a few!

Thank you for your memories. Mary is our angel now! Still cheering!!

A loving sister,

I am so sorry to hear about Mary.... she was actually right down the road from where I am now. I had no idea she was is Beaumont. I'm in Huntsville, funny where we end up and how small the world really is. I remember Mary as always athletic and full of energy. She is greatly missed by her family but also her friends. God bless her family, especially her babies.

I am so shocked being out of the state and not being able to keep intouch with everyone.

I really wish someone would tell me what when why and how---we were friends for a long time then went our seperate ways when she made the dance team and I didnt.  I am sure she is missed

 I am shocked and saddened to hear this... I remember Mary being a complete sweetheart and full of vigor and positive energy. 

My prayers and thoughts go out to her family and loved ones left behind.
