3 Condolences for “Mary H. Kennedy”

    We are so sorry about your Mom. Chene, Cadin and I loved her so much. She was always there with great advice for me when she felt I needed some encouragement when we lived next door to her at 4 Seasons. One Easter I had hidden the boys Easter Eggs out side and went in to wake them, by the time we got back out there another Easter Bunny had stepped out their back door and added to what I had for them, then hid behind the door and watched them I could see her laughing as she watched find all of their treasures. She will be missed.

    She was a very wonderful lady to have known and worked with. She was a lot of fun once you got to know her. I will never forget her as long as I live, because when I was expecting my second child, she gave me the name to which my son carries to this day. My condolences go out to the boys, Marsha, and Diane. She will be missed very much.

    So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. She was such a special lady who LOVED her friends and family so much. I know that she is happy and healthy now and not suffering. The last time that I did her hair was when her health had started to deteriate, and she was not a very happy person about not feeling well. She told me that she had always been healthy, and this not feeling well was really making her mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I can hear her say it now, and it makes me chuckle because she was such a spunky lady. We really thought a lot of here and pray for all her family.
