I came to know Mary as a client in her years with Baldwin Brothers. We always enjoyed a ride in her convertible and hearing stories about her grandchildren when we visited the team in Marion. I wish you peace, comfort and many happy memories. Barbara Wiedenman

Ann-Marie,Jim, Peter and Marcia this was given to me when my father died by one of his neighbors and I share it with you, his grandchildren as one of his children join him and nanny: "And after you have mourned awhile; And grief's deep rut hath worn away; Recall my foolish jokes and smile; For I would have my memory gay; Think of me in my happiest mood; And speak of me as I were nigh; And feel that I am with you still; As in the days gone by."

To my best friend Marcia, her father Mr.Galipeau, Ann-Marie,Jimmy and Peter. It was a privilege spending so much time at your house growing up. Your mom always welcomed me in even if it was the 7th day in a row I was there to see Marcia. Mrs. Galipeau was such a strong role model. She demonstrated strength, love, commitment and dedication to her husband,children and family. I see those same qualities in my friend. May all of you find peace in knowing your wife and mother is at peace. I will miss her and look forward to seeing her again in heaven. Love, Christine

George, Ann-Marie, Jimmy, Peter and Marcia, I am so sorry for your loss and I think of you often and the pain you must be feeling. Mary was such a warm and loving person and someone I will always refer to as my sister-in-law and my friend. We joked that we would always be sister-in-laws. I wish that I could be with you at this time, but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at the sorrowful time.

She taught me many things- right now I wish she had taught me how to let her go. It dawns on me that her life was all about helping me with life and love and all of her loves that came after me. I was her first, her trial and error. I was the one that prepared her to be a mom and grandmother, the first step of many. Its not conceit on my part, its just the realization of her first born who always thought "its not fair why are you so tough on me?" We had to summarize her life in a few paragraphs to tell strangers, friends and family who she was... 65 years is a lot to summarize for the newspaper. It irks me that I can't write endlessly about all she did and accomplished. Mary was a daughter, sister, friend, aunt, wife, mother , grandmother, artist and finally the person everyone said was taken from us to soon. I love you and miss you Mom.

George, Jimmy, Ann-Marie, Peter and Marcia: I was so shocked to hear about Mary. I think we are all in shock here. Nothing I say will help your heart from hurting, just remember the good times you had; the hurt doesn't go away but it will get easier to deal with.

Marcia, I was so sad to hear about your mom. You and your family are part of my morning prayers. After a while, when you come back to work, if you need to talk or just get a hug during the day, please keep me in mind. I know at least a little about what you're going through; I lost my mother suddenly many years ago. With lots of love and hugs, Barbara
