    Dear Joe – Our little park in Sarasota will not be the same next year. Mary Ann’s friends who joined her on those early morning bike rides, the activities in the park, shopping fun at BEALLS will always remember her love of adventure, beautiful smile and wonderful laugh. Mary Ann’s topic of conversation was always the family; her love and pride for you all was huge; please know we are thinking of you and your family in your time of sorrow. Sincerely, Glenn and Karen MacPhail, Canada

    Joe, Bill & Sharon,

    Please accept our sincere sympathy. As I can remember the many times in church waiting to serve Mass and Mary Ann was there, always asking about our family, she was always concerned for the other person. She always asked about dad in the nursing home. She was truly a very special person to us. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers to the family!

    Larry & Sharon

  20. Larry & Sharon Harnak on July 2nd, 2009 7:41 pm

    Please accept our sympathy for the passing of Mary Ann. She was always concerned about the other person. She would always ask about dad and our family when we would all serve Mass together. She will be truly missed!

    Larry & Sharon
