My earliest memories of Mary was my teenagers had a little store building in Harvey, Illinois, where I first met Mary and the Bain family. Her smile was contagious and she will be missed by many but she’s enjoying her time around the great throne with her family. My prayers. And deepest sympathy.

Mrs. Porter was one of the sweetest and kindest woman I have ever met. As kids she let us all hangout and play basketball in her driveway. If it was 1 or 20, she greeted us with a smile. God bless you and your family. Thanks for the memories.

I have so many memories of Ed and Mary. I never saw a couple before so in love after so many years. I remember them visiting me on Maui and being so jealous of their love. Ed, I can’t imagine what you’re going through. I am sending my love and support to you and your family. Pat, you adopted me through Renee so many years ago and I’ve felt a member of your family from day 1. I am sending you all so much love and support from Maui at the loss of a truly beautiful Lady. Ed, I hope you find some comfort in knowing how truly loved you were by Mary. Few people know that lifetime love. God bless. Pattie

Mary you will be missed when we have family get togethers. You and Eddie were always invited when we got together and we had a great time. We will miss your beautiful smile but you are in a far better place. Love you Mary, heaven gained an angel when they got you.
