Very sorry to hear about your mother
My thoughts are with you
It has been a long time since we have seen each other or talked - hope all else is well
Do you go back to Atlanta often, or are you in contact with any Northside classmates. Would be nice to have another reunion.
Take care - all the very best to you, and regards to Sally

What a loss to all that knew her! Mary was simply a remarkable lady! I knew her mostly thru Marion but on the two occasions I got to be with her in person it was evident there was something special about her. I look forward to furthering our friendship in heaven someday.

Mrs Rhett was a kind jolly lady interested in knowing about all details of conversation. It's as if she knew you for centuries. Mrs Rhett made me feel part of the family in just few meetings.women like her are hard to come by. We will miss her.
