Dear Mary, As I look back in time I see the three of us. You were the youngest with pretty Shirley Temple curls. Jeanne and I had straight hair. I see the three of us sitting on the porch swing on a summer evening as we sang songs in three-part harmony. The neighbors came out to listen! I see the years roll by as we chose different paths and dealt with life's ups and downs, victories and disappointments and strengths and weaknesses. We were strong. We were survivors. We were the Dain girls. I love you, Mary. We were more than sisters. We were friends. I know there is a celebration in heaven as Mom and Jeanne are there to greet you, as well as family and friends who have gone before. I will see you again. Love, Pat

My aunt was always up, and willing to laugh and joke and tease. There was never a down conversation. She never missed a birthday without sending me a rotten card, which I looked forward to. I will miss you, but I will see you again. Love, Tim Fitzgibbon

Mary was always my favorite aunt. Mary was upbeat and optimistic. When life gave her lemons, she made lemonade. I enjoyed the rotten birthday cards that she almost never forgot to send me. I will miss her. Brian Fitzgibbon
