  • Kim, Jamey, family, My heart is broken I feel like I have lost a member of my own family, Mary was the epitome of what I call a friend more than a friend she was a wife to my best friend, a mother grandmother and a sister in Christ words fail me to describe how much she and Till meant to me. Please know that you all are in mine,Joan’s, Ronald’s and Dawn’s prayers during all of our times of grief. Rest in Peace friend’s until we meet again,
    Wilton, Joan, Ronald and Dawn Fowler
