To the family of Mary, please accept my deepest and saddest condolences on the passing of a truly sweet friend and fellow workmate while at Sharples Coal. Mary and I worked in the same office in the early 1970's and I will forever remember her, Roger and the daughters. She was such a pleasure to be around, always smiling and upbeat. I am so sorry for your loss.
