I grew up next to Mary. I remember that if it wasn’t for her noticing my brothers odd leg bruises, we wouldn’t have caught his leukemia as early as we did. She was a retired nurse and told my mom terry bower to get him to a doctor right away. He’s been in remission for 10 years thanks to Mary’s nursing skills. She was my moms life long friend and she helped her through some tough times. She’s going to be missed dearly!
