So sorry to hear of Mary's passing. Great memories of Mary and Eddie. Such a nice woman and wonderful friend to my Mother. My thoughts and prayers are with all her family.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I personally know the loss of both a mother and grandmother, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However I found comfort in the Bible's promise for the future. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a time when God will reunite us with our loved ones again! I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

Dear Arena Family....Mary left an indelible memory with all. She was the sunshine in the crowd. I cherish the thoughts of having coffee with Aunt Helen at IHOP....
May you celebrate a life mostly well lived.

Heartfelt sympathy and friendship............Madeline

To Mary K's family: Please accept my sincere condolences. I worked in Circulation at
Norwood Public Library with Mary for several years. We did our jobs serving the patrons
but Mary K always added some fun to the job. After her break she would come back and say
"I'm back and better than ever". Rest in peace dear sweet lady.

My sincere sympathy in the loss of a dear sister, aunt and friend to so many. It was a privelege to know her, to give her the occasional ride home and listen to her stories of years gone by. RIP Aunt Mary.
