    My mother Barbara E. Music and I visited Mary from Grace Lutheran Church both at her house on East New Street and in Evergreen Estates. We always had a wonderful visit, and Mother and Mary came to share a very special bond. Since Mother is 91 years old, Mary was like the older sister Mother never had! Mother and I miss Mary very much, but we know that she is now resting in the arms of her loving Lord and we will see her again one day. We are keeping the entire family in our thoughts and prayers.
