Kim, and all of the Mack and Carter family…my thoughts and prayers have been with you since I heard about Mary Jo’s death. May her memories and God’s grace help you through the difficult weeks and months to come. Mar Jo touched so many hearts in her life. I don’t think I have seen her since our 15 or 20 year reunion but I can still hear her infectious laughter. I can stiill see her in my mind when we were high school classmates. Lots of great memories. We are all going to miss that bubbly personality. God bless and keep you all.

Kim, Sarah, and all the Mack and Carter families, I am so very sorry and saddened about the loss of Mary Jo. Mary Jo, Edie, and I went through nursing school together but had lost touch for many years reconnecting last summer. It was wonderful reminiscing and catching up with each other’s lives and hearing how happy she was. Mary Jo was a beautiful spirit; a ray of sunshine that made everyone happier in her presence. I will miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Kim, Sarah and Mrs. Mack and Family,
My sympathy to all. I only remember Mary Jo with a smile on her face. One very snowy winter night back in the 80s, she had me stay with her after working 2nd shift at Willard Hospital. I was pregnant and she didn’t want me out driving in the weather… That was just Mary Jo. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

To Kim and all of Mary Jo’s family. I am very saddened to hear the news of Mary Jo. I read one person called her a bright light of the world. I would call her a ray of sunshine that would brighten any room that she was in. I will forever remember the fun times we had doing the musical in high school and it was a joy just to have known her.. My prayers to all of you.. Rest in Peace Annie….
