“In loving memory of my partner and love who was a turning inspiration in my life, and no other woman could come close to her. She never met a stranger and was alway uplifting others to see the light of goodness pointing to God’s way. The 13 years I spent with her was heaven on earth with God in the center of our relationship. Mary’s love of people no matter what color or race, she always found a speck of good in them that showed outward. Mary put feelings of others first and was a true angelic being sent by God’s Holy Spirit to comfort. She had an impact on my entire life and changed me for the better, too bad there are not many Mary Elizabeth’s in this world, instead we have too many egotistical self centered hollow vessels of human flesh. Rest my Love in God and his son Jesus and Savior of you and me. Love you and see you in paradise. Amen” – Jim Taetz

Jim,
I’m so sorry to hear about Mary’s passing. You were amazing and so supportive. When I talked to her all she would tell me is how thankful she was and what a wonderful caregiver you were. You always put everything aside and she always came first.
That is such a beautiful tribute to her. It really shows how much you loved her. Keep her memories alive and she will remain in your heart until you are together again. I’m here is you need anything. Love, Michelle
