The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt by the heart.
Rest in peace Mary

My condolences to her family. Our Mothers went to high school together and were best friends. I used to go to their Academy St. home and we played together when we were little. I have often thought of Mary Katherine through the years. I was also friends with her brother Bob. So sorry for your loss. Fly high Mary Katherine.
