    Our sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved loved one.

    It was our privilege to have met Mary and her close friend Carol on a cruise many years ago and have been in touch ever since. Even when she was not well Mary met us when we came to Chicago not too long ago to welcome us to her fair city.

    Mary was a genuine and lovely person who truly will be missed.

    May her family be comforted by her memories of all the joy and love she gave and shared with all.

    Our sincere sympathy for your loss.

    Linda and Christopher Pena
