I sure did love Mrs. Carson, she was such a jewel. Thank you for sharing her with us.
As a fellow church member with Mary I remember her for her dry wit. She certainly had a great sense of humor.. A loyal member of the choir which I appreciated since I can’t sing and so happy that those that can do. Mary is at peace. May your family reminisce about all the good times.
