I will always remember Mary as a kind, warm lady who made me feel welcome. She and Clarence were in the same Sunday School class as I was. Their invitation was often the reason folks decided to try the class. Their wedding anniversary was around the same time as my birthday, so we always talked about how many years they had been married. Their love for each other was heartwarming. I have missed them since they moved to Clinton.
