Aunt Mary, I can’t believe you are gone. I’m glad you are no longer in pain. I’m glad we got to spend your 50th Wedding Anniversary with you and Uncle Steve. I know how excited you were to be married to your soul mate Uncle Steve for 50 years. That is a long time. I’m glad we got to see you a couple of weeks ago and that we took pictures. ❤️ We Love you and miss you Becky and Khanh
