Dear Mr. McHugh, I and the Schott clan are sorry for your loss. You and the Mrs. had many years together and I’m sure Mary will be missed. I remember my dad teasing her when I was a kid. There was always lots of laughs when you were together with my folks. May you find peace and comfort in a life well lived. With deepest sympathy, Patty Schott Zachmann & family

I'm very sorry to hear this sad news. I never met Mary; but I wish I had. It is easy to tell that she was a caring, fun loving human being that was all about the well being of her family and the world around her. It is always a sad and emotional time. It's worth taking the time to remember and to celebrate all that she contributed to the lives around her. Very Sincerely, Dallas
Dallas E Sinnett
