    Aunt Mary was a wonderful lady. She will be missed by all who knew her. I will always cherish the times I was able to spend with her and my Uncle Herbie. We love you dearly, and know you are in a better place now, without the pain. Our prayers are our cousins and their families. Love, Marnette Austin
