Mary
Written:

You loved us Mary-
You showed it in everything you did and said,
Even when we weren't lovable
You saw the good instead.

We'll miss you Mary T.
Your kind and thoughtful way,
Always quick to listen
To what we had to say.

Always there to understand,
We trusted what you hadÍ
Compassion for the weary,
Joy for someone sad.

Let us pray:

Thank you Lord for sending Mary
She spread such love and cheer
She lived a fruitful, God-filled life
Not one of doubt and fear.

She was Your sweet expression
Despite the heavy toll
Mary gathered strength from You
This strong but gentle soul.
