Beth and Margie, we are so sorry to hear of Aunt Mary's passing. She was a sweet lady. We never saw her that she was not the friendliest person to everyone. You could tell that she was very much in the Lord. We love you both and are praying for your good health. Mom Hatcher and Jeanette

Mickey and family,
I loved your mom and of course Mr. Sonny. Ms. Mary was such a loving and gentle soul. We have lost another wonderful person that made Pine Bluff a great place to grow up. My prayers and best wishes for you and yours,
Tommy Curry
