Mary was a Sweetheart, I remember when Mary and Nick lived next door to my Grandfather Homer Ransom, And when Mary worked at Bradbury"s Cafe in Versailles. I aways spoke to her at the Nursing home when I went to visit my Folks Alvin & Natalie Smith. When Mom died in February, I gave Mary alot of Mom's jewlery, She just loved her pretty necklaces. She will be missed. Prayers go out to her family.
