I think they broke the mold for matriarchs with our Aunt Mary. What fantastic memories I have of visits to “Aunt Mary’s ranch house” as we called it. Of shared visits back and forth between the Beales and the Harters, older cousins to look up to, paling around with Bruce, hand-me-down dresses, Uncle Russ giving Ben a haircut in the backyard on Maple Street, the black hat cakes (that didn’t sell well), high school musicals and Mary’s partiality to the adjective “wonderful.” I could go on and on. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Carolyn, Debbie, Bruce and all your loved ones. What a great legacy you all are to your mother, grandmother and great grandmother. With love, Lauren, Paul and Mike
