  1. CandleImageThe extended side of the family that I didn’t get to know very well, but when I was with Grandma Sharon, she would re-introduce me when at family functions. I am so sorry for your loss and know you have comfort in knowing you will see Mary again one day.

  2. So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all the family at this sad time.

    I found news of Mary’s passing, and this obituary, whilst researching my family tree, Sinclair/Connor on my mother’s side. Mary and I would have been 3rd cousins, although we never met. I have traced many of the links between here in Scotland and the USA.

    Take care.
