Mary’s unwavering love for Jim was still present when, despite her Parkinson’s disease, she said “yes” when they recently renewed their vows. She had a quick wit, effortless sense of humor and a seemingly bottomless wisdom she freely shared with all. She made everyone around her better, especially her family.
