My darling big sister, Marylois. I am heartbroken in a way I thought not possible. I hope you are finally free from pain and resting in the embrace of our Lord. God Bless you always, love you more than words can express.

I worked with Mary at Bloomingdale's from 2005-2007, she was always there to greet everyone with a smile and a hug, I was very sad to hear of her passing. I am wishing her close friends and family much love in this difficult time. May this beautiful soul rest well, and I know wherever Mary is, it's fabulous.

Mary - you truly are a one of a kind. I will miss our lunches together and catching up on all the gossip. Working with you at Bloomingdale's was absolutely one of the highlights of my entire career in retail. Rest in Peace!

Dear Mary, the words still ring true, you don't know what you've got till its gone. You really were that shining star. For all the body blows and curveballs that life threw at you, only a woman with your willpower, fortitude, guts strength, and grace ,could have overcome them, and you did. You were not afraid to try new things and your zest for life really showed. In your heart I know you always meant well. You were a real fighter to the end. You had all the attributes of a caring and loving woman built in. Its like a scene from the movie " Its a Wonderful Life"' without you to introduce me to Rosanne there is no Mark Anthony. I looked up the word panache in the dictionary and it said ... MARY ! I realize now all you wanted from life, and the phrase is found in Phantom of the Opera, Love me that's all I ask of you. Our hearts are heavy with your loss. God be with you.you.
