Mary Jane and Phil, So sorry for your loss. Mary and i worked together for over 40 years, she was a very nice lady. I know that you and your girls are going to miss her terribly. I remember when she told me how much Laura loved her pumpkin pies and that she would make a pie special for her. You have our sincerest sympathy. Larry and Linda McCray.
