Mary's Memorial Service was beautiful, with her love and presence noticably surrounding her family and friends who traveled from all reaches of the USA to attend.
Pictures of Mary from an adorable child, to an active teen and world traveling young woman adorned the walls. Her hand-made crafts and exotic finds filled tables around the room, and some of her favorite music filled the air.
Even though this was a time of great sadness, it was also a celebration of honoring the life that Mary lead. One most only dream of.

Aloha our dear Mary. You are loved!
