Taft Raider HS - Memorial Page

Mary Emma Combs - Taft Class of 1990 - Passed away 3.22.08 at the young age of 35.

Mary gave her heart and soul to everything she did and everyone she met.  She was my little sister and I was her #1 fan (still am).  She lived and loved with no judgement and was a true cheerleader in her life as well as her schools.  She accomplished a lot in her little time in life.  Always giving it her all.   She danced and cheered her way through high school and in college too where she graduated on the Deans list from Howard Payne University.   She competed in triathlons and even co-ed roller-blading races - yes, she won most of them.  She was humble too - a beautiful quality that shone through in her compassion she had for everyone else.   She left us with precious gems - Kelsey and Brett - who are shining legacies.  She left us too soon, but she is all around us and cheers for us all.  She shows us her signs and when i catch them, i share them on a blog i had made just for her:

Those who knew her, know exactly what i'm talking about here.  Mary was pure love and joy.  She has touched many peoples hearts with who she was and will live on through us forever.  I will cherish her forever - she is connected to my very soul. I am a better person today because of her.   She has allowed my faith to longer be blind. I can see Clearly now.  The synchronicities she has brought illuminates my life.
