Dear Ross (& MacDonlad Family)Was very saddened in recent days to hear about Mary deteriorating condition and that she was moved to Extendicare, and then shortly after this receiving word that she has passed on. I would have loved to have visited her one more time. Mary was such a personal blessing to me, to our family, and to our church. She was greatly loved and will be even more greatly missed.Love, prayers and comfort in Jesus to all the MacDonald FamilyJeff Bell

I am very sorry to hear about Mary's passing, Ross. She was going through quite a time in recent months as you have reported to us at our breakfast club meetings. I only met Mary a couple of times but remember her well, especially the time I purchase her little Tercel. I found her to be welcoming, warm and friendly. I am sure you have many fond memories to cherish and a wonderful supportive family..Bill

What a lovely lady!! Dear, sweet Mary! She was the first person to truly welcome us when we began attending FBC; she made a point of speaking to us at church and even called me every month or so for a friendly chat - though this soon grew into a friendship and lots of spiritual discussions. I always appreciated her positive outlook based on God's truth!We will surely miss precious Mary but are so thankful to know she is now in the best place ever!! Imagine her awaking in Heaven and seeing Jesus!! Her joy is now full!Praying for you all.P.S. Ross, the last time I saw Mary she was struggling with being in Extendicare, but she told me she knew you were doing your best! How much she cared about you!
