I have wonderful memories of Aunt Mary when I was a child and our family would travel from Arizona to TX to visit my grandparents and all our relatives. Aunt Mary always welcomed us with big hugs, and happy greetings! It always made me feel so welcomed and loved. I remember playing Wahoo with the family, and playing with pieces of hard candy because we long ago lost the actual board pieces. I remember spending the night with Mary Beth and Bobby and Aunt Mary, and hearing “goooood niiiiight” in a southern drawl that always brought a smile to my face.

As an adult, for awhile, I was a flight attendant with United Airlines. Once, I had a short layover in Dallas. Aunt Mary braved the traffic and all the hustle of the airport to come out and get me for a short visit. It was such a blessing to me to be able to see her (and I think Bobby and Mary Beth too) and to spend a little time with family.

I’ve shared countless phone conversations with Aunt Mary, and she never failed to call me a sweet baby girl, encourage me in the Lord, praise me for whatever she heard I was up to at work or at church, and she always had something good to say about the Lord and His love for her.

Though I’m really sad that she’s passed on (for my mom and all our family), I know that she’s having a lot of fun and bringing a smile to Jesus face and His heart. And it makes me thankful that she can be with Mary Beth too. I only wish that the rest of our family lived closer so we could spend more time together. Prayers and love from our whole family are being lifted up for you Bobby and all who loved Aunt Mary. May God strengthen and comfort you mightily during this time. Much love, your cousin, Kelly.
