Memories Cherished... thank you Kevin



"When I look back at Mary, I *always* see an angel. What I remember so strongly is Mary's zest for life. How I could just loose myself in that broad eternal smile of hers, and her eyes that shone of her excitement in everything about life, and could just forget all my struggles and fears.I remember being so enchanted when she cooked for me, lisa and david, one weekend when your parents were away, and I think I said nary a word the whole diner, just enjoying the fun banter between Lisa, David & Mary. I always think of the happy moments with Mary, because that's all she really gave me." ~
This quote above was a description of how Mary is remembered. Oh how I cherish these sweet memories. Thank you Kevin for sharing your memories of Mary as you knew her & the wonderful links to her HPU years. What a gift. I especially love the one in the middle where Mary is being quoted: "...I like to walk around the campus w/my roomate and sing praise songs" ~by Mary Combs, sophomore.
That was Mary! That is what she is doing now in the most beautiful place of all.
