    My heartfelt compassion is with each of Mary’s family. Mary worked with me as a volunteer at Helping Hands Clinic in Lenoir, NC, up and until she started her chemo. and she loved interacting with our patients. She volunteered with a group of her church lady friends from Philadelphia Lutheran Church. Oh, we did have fun on clinic nights at Helping Hands. She was such a friendly and humble lady to work with. She shared pictures of her daughter’s wedding in Maryland. I shall always cherish the times we had together and have thought of her many, many times and had inquired about her through her Granite Falls church friends. She is a precious angel now.
