  1. To all the family, I am so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. She was a wonderful, admirable lady that I remember well from my childhood—-junior newman classes with Father Kavanagh at your home, that I was allowed to attend only by being the bratty little sister of Ron Butler, She was a lady everyone was privileged to have known, and no matter how long and good a life one had, the loss is still profound. Thinking of you all.

  2. To the family of Mary Wing:
    Those we love are never really lost to us…we feel them in so many special ways…through friends they always cared about, and dreams they left behind, in beauty that they added to our days…in words of wisdom we still carry with us and memories that never will be gone…Those we love are never really lost to us…For everywhere their special love lives on.By Amanda Bradley
    It was my deepest priviledge to care for your mother during the last hours of her life. Even though we had her for such a short time and I couldn’t get to hear your stories about her, I could feel the love for her in the room which told me volumes about the kind of person she was. I hope I was able to bring some small measure of comfort and peace to her journey, and to you all. My deepest sympathy, Verna Hainer, RN (Sangre de Cristo Hospice House)

  3. Ralph, we were so sorry to hear of your mothers death. You and your family will be in our prayers. May our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, give you strength, peace and comfort during this most difficult time.
    With Our Sympathy and Our Love,
    David and Valerie

  4. She will be missed for her sweetness, her sense of humor, and the loved she showed for her family. She was such a sweetheart. We will miss visiting with her and her great stories.
