Memories Timeline


  1. While I worked at Safeway, as a cashier, Mary was a customer I always appreciated helping her. Mary always has a fun story or joke. Mary always had a zest for life! A fine lady!

  2. Mary, Thank You for being my friend…
    It makes me happy that you are reunited with “Your Eddie” this Christmas.
    I miss You.

  3. I cannot seem to wrap my mind around the passing of my mother, nor can any of our family I think.

    Thank you Gerry for putting this up. The picture made me smile as she put me through hell taking that picture til it met her approval.
