I knew Mary through John – he was my boss at AEP. They were a devoted couple. They were so in touch with their extended family. John always talked about them when I would talk about my five sons. Mary always was the first Christmas card & always so considerate. The family they always talked about will now be in my prayers as well as Mary & John.
