  1. CandleImageMary was a special lady, who loved and faithfully served her Lord through her years. She was a loving and caring lady who touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed by all those who had the honor and privilege of having her in their life, past and present. Our families have been acquainted for many years and we have pleasant memories of past times spent together at various occasions in years past. May the Lord’s love, peace, comfort, and guidance be with all of you. We care and send much love to you now and in time to come. She will ALWAYS be only a memory away! You will be in our continued thoughts and prayers. REST IN PEACE DEAR MARY, until we meet again.
    Love and prayers, Verne and Nancy (Hubbell) Luellen and family, Harlingen, Texas

  2. Mary, you will be missed by so many. Thank you for being such a great friend to me and a great nanny to my kiddos. We all love you so much and are going to miss you. I know you are dancing with the angels. R.I.P. my dear friend. I love you so much and my only regret is not being able to see you before you left us. I know you are in a much greater place. No more suffering, no more pain. Until we meet again my dear friend rest easy.

  3. Sad to read of the passing of Mary. Many moons ago, I had the privilege of teaching her children at Vineland Elementary. She was a devoted and loving mother! I pray that her family is consoled by the great memories from better times. May God hold of you tightly in his hands and may He give you all the graces needed to sustain you during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    • Thank you very much! Did you have a different last name when you taught at Vineland? Thank you so much for your kind words, it means so much to us.

  4. CandleImageLove and prayers Griffin family. Mary has always been so close in my ❤️. She made such a difference in my life. Such a gift you all were in my childhood.

    She was art, and she was not painted by accident.
    Every stroke of her beauty ; imperfectly perfect, was painted with purpose.

    • Thank you, Laurie! Your love, words and thoughts mean so much to me. My mom mentioned you and Terri while she was in-home hospice. She loved you very much.
