"Mary, I still can't believe you are now in Heaven. You had such a HUGE heart that held so much love for everyone you met, caring, funny, outgoing, giving and always smiling no matter what kind of day you were having. Your love for Shannon and his love for you was one that you rarely ever find! You always had one anothers backs, stood firm beside one another and never would give up on each other. You will always have a place in my heart because you've left such a HUGE impression in my life. You and Shannon became family to Ross and I from day one. We have so many fun memories together and I will hold onto those until the day we see one another again in Heaven. You know that we will always watch over Shannon! We love you and miss you!!!!"
