Dottie, I was so sorry to learn of Mary's passing. We have a lot of wonderful memories of Mary while she worked in Nuclear Medicine for many years. Mary was a hard worker and a fun person to work with. We have special memories of her especially at Halloween time, when we would all dress up in the office and take our yearly Halloween picture. She spoke very highly of her family and really enjoyed her time spent with her nieces and nephews.

My deepest condolences to you and your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
