This news brings back a flood of happy memories and early morning tears.

What a classy person she was - and what a voice.

Sing with the angels sweet lady.

I loved her music and it spoke for a generation. Mary was true to her message always. The songs were never dated and inspire new generations today. My heart goes out to the family and friends, thank you for sharing her with us.
