Mary was our Ray of Sunshine, sent to us by God to spread her love and joy to everyone she met. She is so happy now to be with Mama and Daddy and to be able to walk and talk and sing and dance.

She was a member of First Missionary Baptist Church of Varnado and loved to sing in the choir and sing “Amazing Grace.”

Graveside services will be held on Monday, Dec. 21, at 1 p.m. at Pounds Cemetery. The Rev. Kelly Penton will be officiating.
