She left a lasting impression on everyone she new. I am so glad to have had the time I had with Mary. She was a very special woman to say the least. She will be missed by many.

Mary will certainly always remain in my heart and mind as she was a phenomenal woman! I graciously give her credit for personally guiding me in the Financial Industry over many years. I would not be the person I am today had she not devoted so kindly her time, belief, and drive to never give up on what you love to do. She will always remain in my heart and soul! God Bless you Dennis and Family! May God Bless you and keep you in His loving care now and always.

Mary was so much fun in high school at Dreher. She really was an inspirational person in all that she game back to the community, especially USC, and I'm so sorry to hear of her untimely passing.

My thoughts and prayers are with Dennis and the family. Mary was kind and inspirational to me when she managed the Fort Wayne, IN office. She helped me personally through a rough time in my life as I left for breast cancer surgery on her first day as manager. We enjoyed fun times together with her and Dennis on many occasions, and she led our office by example to always give back to our community. I'm honored to have known her and am among the many who were blessed by her.

I had the pleasure of working with Mary for many decades. Always optimistic, cheerful and fun, she was a delight to be around. And someone I always looked forward to seeing at the many meetings we both attended.
Dennis, my thoughts and prayers go out to you as I know she was a real soulmate and you two had a special relationship you dont see in a lot of couples.
She made the world a better place.

I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I wanted to say that I worked with Mary when she was our Regional Director. Mary always treated everyone with kindness and respect no mater what our title or position might have been at Merrill Lynch. She inspired me as a woman of great charater and charisma. I am glad that she touched my life.
I will keep Mary and her family in my thoughts and prayers.
