"So very sorry for the loss of such a beautiful lady!
May John 5:28,29 comfort your heart with the resurrection hope...and the time Isaiah 33:24 when NO resident will say "I am sick""
"Dear Family of Mary,
I'm sorry that you are experiencing the mourning of losing a love one. Many if not all of us has experienced this, but I would like to share a brief scripture that will may just bring you comfort.
(Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Thanks for reading."
"I'm crying as I write this, and Sitting out Zumba today, for a Moment of Silence and Respect for Mary Pickard and Sharon Pickard. Because your Mom was an Artist, I wrote this in Tribute of her Shining Life:
Your Life is a Blank Canvas...Paint Carefully on the Canvas of your Life.
Your Life is a Song, Sing the Words that Inspire Others to Honor God, Jesus, and Their Glory, Truth, and Compassion. All my Love, Debi Kay Hopper. Your Gospel Singer, Singing for Your Family from Del Rio. O:)"

You and your family are in our prayers during this time. Please know that she lives on in the hearts of those she touched in life...and there are many! May God richly bless you all."
"Beautiful Aunt Mary...you were such a bright light shining in our family. You always had a smile on your face and kindness in your words. Thank you for always being a role model, energetic, and always full of love. Your children and grandchildren are a lasting tribute to all you and Uncle Bob accomplished. Your legacy lives on with them."
"I will always remember Aunt Mary with her sweet, kind smile and how she would always put her hand on my arm and tilt her head and say “now Kim, how are you, tell me all about the kids". She had the kindest heart and I know how much her family will miss her. Her beautiful spirit lives on through her children and my memories of her are forever in my heart. I will miss you, Rest in Peace Aunt Mary. My condolences to you Uncle Bob, I will keep you in my prayers."
"I have wonderful memories of Mary with fun times on tennis courts in La Canada, club trips to RIo Bravo Resort and our get together in Santa Fe, laughing just like old times. Mary is at peace now and will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known her. I send loving thoughts to Bob and Family. Jan Puhl"

"The Evetts family light a candle for such a wonderful, loving gracious lady..."

"Randy and I only knew you for 15 years Mary, but it felt like a lifetime.
We have so many great memories; all the nights playing Rummikub, taking drives through the Hill Country and our many dinners. Oh, and the trip you made with me to get Zoe. You and Bob made us feel right at home when we moved in across the street. You'll be forever in our hearts and you were a light in our lives.
Bless you our dear friend! Love, Randy and Dee Dee"
"Love you Aunt Mary and love to your whole family"
"I have known my Aunt Mary all my life and thought she was so pretty. Her blond hair and her laugh that can always be heard if you just close your eyes and listen..... It was always followed by "OH BOB"! Uncle Bob (my godfather) made my Aunt very happy. And my prayers go out to him now because they had something very special....
Aunt Mary thank you for playing words with friends with me, I will miss you. I am so glad the last time we talked I was able to tell you my double biopsy was normal. You were very happy for me and I knew you would be."
"Long-time friends of the Schreiber family, my family and I send our condolences on the passing of Mary. Our prayers go with her and those left to mourn her. She was an amazing lady, and she left behind a beautiful legacy.
From the Roger Lawrence Family (Greg and Jeff Lawrence, Melinda Lawrence Curry, Julie Lawrence Miller, and Peggy Lawrence Ware)"
"Love you Mom. You are forever in my heart. I look forward to the day we unite again in heaven."
"Such a lovely lady. I will miss her terribly and our laughs we had when visiting from Maine . She was like a mother to me and I will always hold a special place in my heart for dearest Mary. I loved looking at all the happy family photos. How fortunate you all are to have shared such a close bond which will carry you through the days ahead......when I look at the stars I know she is smiling down at us . I love you all so much . God bless ~ Andrea , Brenden & Connor"

Love you, DeeAnn"
"Our condolences to you and your family, Sharon. Godspeed, she is at peace now. Rosemary"
"Your beautiful mom and my mom were in the same class at Edison and went on to Texas State where they studied many of the same classes. My mom was also friends with her brother at Marshall when he was principal, and as a teen as well. She always spoke highly of them all, and thought your mom was a wonderful person. Though I never met her in person, I did get to know her wonderful children; and know she had to have been a fantastic mom to have raised such loving, caring children. Her artwork has blessed me this year, as I watched the beauty of her art remain strong while her body was trying to beat that awful cancer. I could tell by her pictures that she loved this beautiful earth, and more importantly the Lord who created it. I know she has found her peace in her Heavenly home, and I know she will be waiting for her family to join her there with open arms. God bless you all. I hope she finds my mom there, as she is new to Heaven too, and they have a great "Golden Bear" reunion. Much love to you all."
"Beautiful Lady, You have won the battle! Shine on, Karen White"
"As a friend of Darrell's I enjoyed seeing his mom's beautiful artwork that he would share on Facebook.
Darrell is such a helpful, loyal, and loving man that I know his Mom must be watching down from heaven and smiling. May her cloud move across the sky like a wave across the sea and may there always be a whisp of sea breeze going through her hair. Thank you for sharing your mom with us Darrell."
"Although I never got to meet this beautiful woman, I feel that I know her, and I know what kind of amazing mother she was. You only have to get to know her son, Darrell, to realize what a wonderful mother she must have been. He is one of the most kind, loyal, hardworking and genuine people I know. I have no doubt that this means Mary and her influence lives on every day, in Darrell. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Darrell, and with all your family."
"I love you Mom. Thank you for always loving and supporting me throughout the ups and downs of my life. Whether I was near home or far away (on Guam and Hawaii), it never mattered; I always felt like you were with me. Distance and time was irrelevant. It's the same now until we meet again. Please give all our dear departed dogs and cats a big hug for me: Muffy, Dexter, Cagney, Dalton, Spirit, Ben, Gus, Nanuk, Dutch, Chloe, Hazel, Tiger, Leon, Gato, Sheba, Lestat, Shadow, Bou, Luna and Luther. We always talked about seeing them again some day. I hope they surround you with love."
"I love you mommy"
