Dear Family: I worked with Mary at Ft Rucker for quite sometime and visited in her home. She & Richard used the Blueprints for our house when building theirs. Went thru the adoption of Sonja and loved you so much. I am so sorry about your loss and Mary was a dear friend for years, but we had not been in touch for quite some time. Please know that I am thinking of each of you during the sad days.

Frances Knowles
