Dear Paul and Family, We are so sorry to learn of the loss of your mother, Mary. We all have fond memories of her, and your family, growing up next door on Derby St for many years. I remember she, and your father, used to buy the giant bags of dum-dum lollypops and give them out to all the kids in the neighborhood. She always made us feel special. Surely, she will be missed. Take care, Kathy (Mooney) Jacobs & the Mooney Family

Dear Paul, Susan & Joey: Aunt Mary showed us all what endurance and love for life is all about. You should be glad you had the opportunity to spend so much time with her even in the darkest hours of her illness. We are praying for you, no need to pray for her as we know she is in a much better place now in company of her creator our God. She will be missed but remembered with her unforgettable laughter. Love, Randy & Ana

Mary was a wonderful lady who always had a smile for everyone. Despite her long illness she lived life to the fullest, she was a lot of fun (she loved her bingo) and she was a devoted mother and grandmother. Our condolences to Paul, Susan, her grandson Joey and extended family.

When our visits brought us to Weston these past 10 years, we looked forward to seeing Paul, Susan, Joey and Mary. Mary was always working on a puzzle and had great stories. Despite her health issues, she was always a joy for us to be around. We are sorry for your loss and will keep you in our prayers.
