    Dear Daryl & Stacey,

    I only knew your mother for such a short time and yet she gave me a lifetime of inspiration. For a woman that had been through so much…losing her husband and then her battle with cancer…she remained positive and so full of life and humour. Most 84 year olds would have thrown a pity party and sunk into depression. Mary faced her cancer with determination and didn’t give up until she knew it was her time. I love how she still wanted to go out for a beer and play card games with her friends. What a wonderful joyful spirit to remember her by.

    I will never forget how she modeled Jesus by always putting others before herself. Mary was a mother in the truest sense. Her special love that she had for her sons, daughter-in-laws, grandchildren, and many others who she mothered, in one way or another over the years, makes me think that her given name, Mary, was deserved because it is as special a name as she is a person.

    While you feel sadness for the loss of such an amazing mother, it must be comforting to know that she is now with your father and Her Father, enjoying what we can’t even comprehend in our earthly wisdom. There is great rejoicing going on in heaven and Mary, no doubt, is having the time of her life…eternally.

    I was blessed to have known her and have been blessed by her example.

    With much love,
    Linda Cheyne

    To Mary’s family
    I knew Mary for only a short time but during that time, I learned what a strong individual she was: thoughtful, giving, a pleasure to be with. She will be missed but not forgotten.
