Look for Mary
For though she is now lighter than your thoughts
you will recognize the effervescence of her
Where all trails beckon

Being Mary's friend and neighbor has been heartwarming and an adventure. Passing French crumb coffee cake and tubeless toilet tissue in the Supermarket will remind me of Mary. She was always appreciative and glad to be my friend. She had great faith that helped at the close of her life. I will treasure her friendship and always remember her in my prayers. Rest in peace, my friend.

To all of the Janssen family and our combined family this is a sad time. But with all sad things that happen there is some good. Mary is at peace now. I sincerely appreciate the time I shared with her at family gatherings. It spans many years.
