Can't believe this.
Certainly one of the strongest women I've ever known, she was another mother to me, like
She didn't have enough boys to worry about. She took me in when I had no place to go. She fed me when I didn't have food and she fussed at me when I did wrong and always treated me like her own when I sure didn't deserve.. she was a rock for many people. I always wondered how she could be so strong ,
I got to believe there's a special place in heaven for mothers of boys and she raised enough boys to be at the top
To this day I think one of my favorite of all time things to eat was her leftover meatball sub she made us she must have fixed 1/2 a cow in meatballs because she they were softball size and everyone ate them w/ Rigatoni the night before.
Best way to discribe Marry I recon would be well
A cut above the rest born Italian and raised a hillbilly mother of 4+ boys in a hard to handle husband made her unbelievably tough in the best cook in the world. God she will be missed by so many, I'm lucky to have known her!!

Oh my, where do I start … I met her children Mark, Jeffrey, and Lisa before I met Ms.Mary through their cousins, and mutual friends! I do remember she would pick us up from school ; 80’s Lol 😂 that’s been a long time ago! Grandma Mary to me was the strongest Woman I’ve ever known, with 4 boys & a baby girl she’s seen/been through a lot in her 87, years on this earth from witnessing birth ….to Life with her great grandchildren … to witnessing death to so many friends, and family members Grandma Mary always stood strong no matter the circumstances! I’ll miss her dearly, but I’m so thankful I have the memories of Grandma Mary in my life! R.I.P. ♥️😇

To my little sister, Mamie: Recalling many memories of growing up together and how close out family was. After you married and moved away we looked forward to your visits back home with Ray and your children . You had so many good friends. You will always have a place in my heart and will be very missed.

To my grandma Mary. I will always remember what a hard worker you were. You always made sure everyone was taken care of. So many people loved you and respected you. Thank you for always loving me and for giving me one of the greatest gifts ever. My dad. Mark is such a good man because of the woman you were. I love you so much. I miss you but I know you are with everyone you have missed for so long. Tell my pawpaw I love him and miss him. Thank you grandma for everything you did. Never forgotten.

My love to Mary and the Massey family. She was like a mom to me....at times, she was a mom to us all. I will never forget her and of course, her cooking....the rigatoni and meatball dinner she made was the best. Love to you all.
