Mary’s commitment to her family was always a priority. There was no limit to that kind of love. Her devotion to her Catholic faith was monumental. We will always cherish the good morals and values she instilled in all of us. We were truly blessed to have her in our lives.  May the heavens be filled with a joyous reunion where the Newfie music is endless and your legs never get tired of dancing.
