My dear friend Mary died peacefully at home on Thursday.
Tuesday was her birthday and I went by with a gift - a photo album I put together of pictures of so many happy times our group of friends spent together: dragon boating, hiking, skiing, biking, snow shoeing, and travelling. My heart is breaking but it was wonderful to look back over all those times and to see smiling pictures of Mary looking healthy and active.
Mary slipped into a coma later that day and never woke up. I will write more about my memories of her at a later time. For now, here is her obituary from today’s Citizen.
