  • My sincerest condolences on the passing of Mary Ann, your beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and so much more. I have many memories and pictures with her from the last 20 years and I will remember her fondly. She was always generous and funny. I can still hear her regularly exclaiming, “oh my gawd!” in her western PA accent. 🙂 She will be missed.
