    Mary was my only attendant at my wedding on November 22, 1958. She and I went to school together at Little Rock Central. A sweeter girl there never was. She was a precious friend I’m sorry I lost touch with her over the years. She will be missed by many.

    I`ve known Mary since we were kids at Alicia Ar went to school together, always a great person. I remember when she and Byron were married. Byron and I were neighbors and best friends in our teen years and many years after, but finally lost touch. Great people. Sorry for your loss.

    I was able to know Mary through my friendship with her brother, Kermit. I remember her well as she was always such a sweet person. I have thought of her many times through the years and wish I could have told her what her kindness meant to me.
