So sorry to hear the sad news about an old friend. We had many fun times throughout the years when they lived on the farm and all the kids were young. Will miss my old friend. RIP Mary Jane.

Mary Leab the first time I saw you I knew you would teach me a few things about life! I can't believe your gone, this earth will never be the same without you but I'm glad you are at peace with Phil and your boys and brothers. You were my friend, you treated me like family, like a second mom to me, we had so many memories in a short time. I'll never forget that smiling face when I walked through your door every morning and left every evening! Friday nights were the best and I'll always keep you in my heart forever. You truly defined what it is to enjoy life! so long my friend till we meet again I'll remember you. I love you Mary

Diane and Family,
I am so very sorry to hear this news. I remember you talking about the annual trip to Maine to go to the beach and what a wonderful time you had together. How lucky for you to have such great memories. You are a loving daughter who helped her Mom so much and made her time here so special and so happy. I wish you comfort during this difficult time and want you to know I am thinking of you.
With My Sincerest Sympathy and Love,
Joanne Wyand
