Mary was a compassionate and caring woman. She had an incredible strength and went through many challenges without complaint.
Don, you were a rock and an incredible support for Mary and did it all with great love and empathy. It did not go unnoticed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Don, and the family.

We send our deepest condolences and love to you Don, Paul & Family and Mark & Family. We keep in our hearts and minds all the wonderful memories shared over the years with Mary. She was beautiful, insightful, passionate and she was truly one of a kind. She could always light up a room, whether she was making everyone laugh with her witty personality, singing great old songs with Don or storytelling the best memories to us of her and our parents and grandparents back in the day. We love you all very much and we are always here for one another xoxo
