My heartfelt condolences to Dr. Teems, Bea, David, Rhett, and all of your lovely family. Mary Ann was an angel on Earth. She was always giving me encouragement during and after the loss of my Mother and Brother. I still keep a note she sent to me on my refrigerator that included a prayer for God's Peace to be mine during the loss of my Mom, and I know this would be her prayer for all of you! I will miss lunches with her, seeing her at CBS, and Christmas parties with the Ruth Class at FBC. She considered the visits to her friends in hospitals and nursing homes, her Mission, and was there for so many without fail. I am certain she was miserable not being able to carry on during this pandemic. We shared so many wonderful moments, and I always felt closer to God by simply being around her. It is rare to have a friendship like hers, in this world. Please know how much she was loved by so many, and what an awesome example of how we should live that she was for those who knew her. May each of you find your own Peace and Strength in the Spirit she had and the memories you have. All my Love to each of you!
