  1. I’m so glad I had the chance to visit Aunt Mary a couple years ago. I made a special trip up especially to see Aunt Mary & Alice. Our families have always been thousands of miles away, but the time didn’t matter as she made me feel as comfortable as a family member that had always been there. I loved that I found out where I got my spitfire from! She was a hoot and didn’t mince words. I really enjoyed our time together and only wish there were more of them. RIP Aunt Mary, you were one of a kind.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during the loss of a Great Lady and Friend she will be greatly missed. So glad to have known her.

  3. Life is strange. One day you\’re on this earth then the next the Lord decides to take you. Mary was looking forward to her 90th but the Lord was ready for her now. I want to go like she did, fast without pain. It\’s funny how we know when a baby is going to be born but we don\’t know when we\’re going to die. As we get older we think about it more and the best thing to do is love the Lord and each other. You didn\’t mention Jackie, Andy or your Dad in this obituary but I\’m sure your Mom is having a great reunion with them. Through no fault of ours and even though your Mom and I had the same parents, I regret that she and I were not raised together. I am glad that she and your Dad came to settle in Colorado. The Silver family will go on living, nevertheless you will miss Mom. So will I.
    All my love, Aunt Alice

  4. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during the loss of dear “Mary”. What a great lady and friend to us during our years at Park Hill Baptist Church. Her faithfulness and love for her Lord was an example to all who knew her.

  5. I feel blessed to have kept in touch with my ‘Auntie M’ for several years. She must have known that a simple act of ‘pen to paper’ would help connect one so far from home. Her many little cards with stories and expressions of love I have collected over the years are now all the dearer to me. My husband and I feel honored to have received a couple of those knitted caps she was always making for the Rescue Mission – such a life saver to those in need and those relatives crazy enough to live in Alaska. May Mary’s children, grandchildren, sister and all her family and friends far and near receive our prayers of love and peace as you spend these days in remembrance of God’s purpose for her incredible life. “God Speed, Auntie M – so glad we’ll meet again!”
