Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss…our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. The day I lost my mother, Sara Hollowood, I realized I had my own special angel to look out for me, and now you each will have your own as well. Although I know it's very hard to let go of her, know that Mary is no longer in pain. Praying for you all at this very difficult time. Beth and Bobby Garrison Noblesville, IN

Although my "Momma Leake" has now left this Earth for a more peaceful place, I will never be able to forget her boisterous laugh as she entertained, fed, and cajoled, all of her boys and their friends. Her passing has taken away a part of my carefree youth. She was dearly loved by all of us young men as we came of age and grew into men in the '70s and '80s. I wish that I could be with all of you tomorrow when you celebrate her life, but my own family commitments will keep me on West Coast. I will be sending my love and laughter instead. Godspeed Momma Leake from your California boy!!

First let me express my deepest sympathy to the Family of Mary Ann. I graduated high school with Mary Ann and was her prom date back in May, 1957 when she was Mary Ann Alestra. I didn't see Mary again until our 25th school reunion and it was a delight. Thank you dear Lord for her life and laughter.

My sincere sympathy to all of the family. My friendship with Mary began some years ago at Curves. We talked, laughed, told stories, had some wonderful field trips and we did work out a little. I feel blessed to have known such a unique and caring person.

Jeff, Mike and Jimmy, I am so sorry for your loss. You guys and your Mom were a big part of my young years (and Nancy's) and I loved your Mom. She may not have liked Nancy and I being over all the time, but she was always so sweet to us "bookends". Thoughts and prayers to you and your families.
