    To Billy, (Jan) Carol. and the rest of the Abercrombie family. I was saddened to hear that Miss Mary had passed away. I like many in this area had known her for many years. She was such a fine example of a true Southern Lady. She had a sweet smile, and a warm greeting each time you saw her. I know that she will be sorely missed by her loving family, and by all that knew her. May the family continue to find peace and comfort, knowing that she is now with Bill. God bless each of you in the days ahead. My heartfelt thoughts to you all.
