I am very sorry for your loss. I know Mary is resting in peace. She was my roommate in the hospital. She was a trooper. She was such an inspiration to me in the hospital. She always had such a positive attitude. I became very fond of her in those 6 days I knew her and will always remember her. I am so glad I got to share those days with her. May god bless you all. Love, Theresa Reed
