    Mary is very special to us and we will miss her phone calls. She loved the Word of God and always had questions, which she now can ask of Jesus in person! May her passing be a reminder to others that we will all leave this earth some day and we must be prepared to spend eternity in heaven – those unprepared have no such hope!
