I am so sorry to hear of your Mother/Grandmother’s passing. I worked with her at Golden Corral for many years. The things that I remember most about Mary was her giving heart ❤️ during the Holidays, she would bring in a laundry basket full of little presents for her coworkers. And Her Love for her Grandchildren Anthony and Cheyenne.

When you worked at Hank's we used to drove my Corvair through the sliding doors just to bring you pizza at night. Love you and will miss you.
