Dear Mr. Milton, Susan and family,

We were so sorry to hear of Miss Mary's passing Monday. She was a wonderful, kind, caring and loving woman to everyone that knew her. Heaven gained a very special angel Monday morning. I know when she entered those Pearly Gates that she went in dancing, shouting and healed from her head to the soles of her feet.

We pray that God will give all of you the peace, strength and comfort during this most difficult time. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you all.

Deepest Sympathy,

Brian, Paige, Justin, and Phillip Hubbard
