    Dear Bill, Madeline and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mary Ann. Although I know she is now at rest with her thoughts and worries. I looked up to this beautiful, intelligent and talented woman as a teenager. We did not get to see each other as much as I would have liked but I enjoyed my cousin. God bless you all at the loss of your sister. I am sending my love, Mary Agnes Walby
