My heart is broken for Dennis and family. I will miss Mary, we go a way back. For Dennis and friends, do you remember decorating the trailer at Lemonwood for the Christmas Parade in White Hall? Though a long many years ago, what a treasured memory that is for us, Margie and Troyl We have a lot of memories, Dennis, do you remember the surprise baby shower for Mary, I don't think Mary was too happy at 10 am for that to happen. But it was all good. Time always changes things, but time will never change the love I have for Mary Reaves. Love in Christ, remember the good times, Dennis. We love you.
