My family and I meant Mary in 1963 when I began doing speech therapy for Special Ed. She kept our department in the things we needed. She was interested in my children who were toddlers at the time. She always enjoyed pictures and hearing about their antics.
Often she would share actives of her nieces and nephews. She was very proud of her family. Memories of 54 years ago come back like they happened yesterday . When I would start to use the mimeograph machine(no copy machine.)

A person one has known for such along time is definitely a friend. I will miss my friend Mary. You have my sympathy.

Blessings and smiles,
Joyce Shipp
