Aunt Mary has always been such a great Aunt, I tried to learn sign language in School to help me better understand Her & my cousins, Her daughter Marilyn helped me also every time she would come to our house for a visit during the Summer, But never could keep it in my head I am the type who needs lots of practice, but just couldn't understand the book I do however know the ABCs in sign & taught my Daughter & Granddaughter those, My other Cousin Sharon Murdock knew so & so she helped me as I got older, Aunt Mary knew I could understand her better when she spoke & I could hear the words she was saying, I always told her I loved her every time we met, At every Reunion , Thanksgiving & Christmas, I will miss her smiling face & she had so much love to give, I am greatful that the Lord seen how much she was suffering & finally took her home to Heaven to be with her Family that has gone on before, I hope she is talking to my Dad, & her other siblings as well as being with he Husband Leo and her Mom& Dad, She loved them all & she still has love that she will give to those who are still her on Earth, She is another Angel to watch over the Family , She would not want us to Cry but rejoice that she is a perfect Angel now No pain, Can hear & talk so perfectly, She would want us all to be Happy for her, But I know I will cry because I wont see her anymore till my time is up here on Earth too. Go REST HIGH ON THAT MOUNTAIN MARY your work on Earth is done, R.I.P love ya always.
