Sometimes you get to know a person through their children. I wasn’t sure what to write when I logged on to this page, but when I saw the smile of Ms. Mary Lee, I knew. Thank you for your lovely daughters, one of which has made my life much richer. I know I hear your voice in her sage advice, and her brilliant smile, which helps me get through tough days, is your smile. Through your children, a piece of you remains in the world. Thank you for your legacy.
