Thinking of you all at this very difficult time. My all the fond memories bring you comfort as you move on to life without her. I'm thankful our paths crossed and I had the honor of knowing such a very kind and gentle soul. Rest in Peace Maryann...hugs to the entire family.
We didn’t see Aunt Maryann and Uncle Mel often, but when we did it was as if time hadn’t passed at all. It was always great fun . Our sincere condolences to the entire family. Susie Boxrud and family
