Mary, mornings are not the same! I miss your phone call to Sabrina. I would wonder if the two of you would be done talking by time I was done in the shower. Often not, you both could talk forever! I wish the phone would ring. I miss your voice ...

I met Mary only once, but her daughter,Sabrina, is like a sister of my heart. Mary gave her so many gifts, not the least of which is her joyful, loving heart that never misses a chance to reach out to the people she loves.What a lovely lasting gift.

When I see a humming bird in my yard, I always think of Mary. She introduced me to them years ago. Really special lady she was, left her love everywhere. Mary was a wonderful friend that I will miss dearly !

Such a wonderful memorial ! The pictures of Mary really get to me. I will always remember "Mrs. Gildersleeve" as a vibrant and stunning woman, jet black hair always in a bun. Her laughter so contagious, she touched many lives in her special way

I have so many fond memories of our families ... our vacations to Cape Cod, Myrtle beach, and just the years spent growing up together. I am so sad for your loss and my thoughts are with Sabrina, Sleeve and the family.

I will miss our visits after work or after skating practice. You never missed a beat to encourage me or share your joy. Remebering loading your car with the stick which held up the trunk. I will miss you deeply. You have touched my heart and soul.

My dear friend Mary was one of the most caring, thoughtful, generous persons I know who loved life, work, and her family & friends. She also loved camping and getting away in the RV and we were fortunate to have spent many trips together in the past.
