My heart breaks not being able to be with you, Mahesh, Alicia and Anjali, to help support you at this difficult time. No words can truly comfort you right now, but Mary loved and lived for all of you, and she fought her illness longer than most to stay with you. She was 1 tough lady beneath her sweet composure! Friends since our teen Kresge's years, I will miss her and wish her eternal peace and your family the strength to carry on, and continue to make her proud, as Mary would want you to. God bless you all and may you Rest In Peace, Mary. Catch you on the Other Side

Dear Mahesh, Alicia and Anjali,

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved wife and mother. I knew Mary as a dedicated teacher, good humored coworker and a compassionate friend. World of Wonder has missed her presence for awhile now. We all will remember memories of this amazing woman with a smile.

RIP, Mary B.❤

Sincerely, Denise
