"8 years ago your family and friends gather at your funeral to say good-bye. It was a beautiful service and a snowy day. At your burial under the big oak tree Kathy led us in singing Amazing Graze for an amazing child of God. And now an amazing God gets us thru each day and on our journey without you. Our journey still has much for us to do. Sharing times with Sam and Nick are so very special.  You instilled caring and compassion in both of them.  Till we meet again, peace and love. Mom"

"Happy Birthday Mary! It is hard to believe that you have been gone from this earth for 8 years. So much has happened, but I know you have seen it all!  I saw Nick quite a bit this summer. He had several tournaments in the area. He is a cutie and so sweet, at least to me! Sami is busy with school but I try to keep in touch by texting. I can tell she takes her school work very seriously and will be such a blessing to those she cares for when she completes her degree. Elizabeth is working at a non for profit agency in their child care center. She is working with 3 year olds, a bit like you and me! Patrick is taking a break from school and working at SAM's club. I think he is good with people. Hopefully he will return to school and find a degree to satisfy his social personality! Sarah has her permit! She has grown into a sweet, but strong young lady. She plays the flute,does flags in marching band and is a cheerleader. I wish she could have known you better. I am still working with 4 year olds, 4 mornings a week. I have an awesome new assistant. She makes me laugh and not take things too seriously. There isn't a day that goes by that i don't think of you. I have the poem you gave me and our picture up in my bedroom. I see your smiling face everyday and I am reminded of our precious friendship! Thank you for being my friend. I know that you are experiencing the best that God has to offer of a life in Heaven! I look forward to the day when we can meet again, laughing, crying and loving each other!"

"Thinking and remembering Mary today.  Missing Mary and especially whenever all the family gets together, but always so grateful to have Sam and Nick there.  They were with us when our family was together on December 20.  Your children are growing up and maturing into young adults that you would be proud of."

"Another year without you but always in our hearts.  It has been a busy year. Sam got her white coat and entered the Doctor program for Physical Therapy at St. Louis University.  She is doing very well all of her classes are now at the Medical Center. Nick has 1 semester down at JJC and did very well continues to be on the ball team and still pitching. Deanna has been busy being executor for Jane's estate, her death is still hard for her. Know you, Jane and Dave are watching over her and giving her strength.  Aunt Helen is with you now too and finally free and made whole. Aunt Win will be joining you soon too but Grandma Great is still with us and doing great. We stop everyday to see her and take care of her needs. These are special times for us. Dad and I still are busy as ever with Church, Leydig and BeeHappyAcres.  We do take time to rest now and then. The past 7 years have seen many changes but our strong faith and awesome God has seen us thru them.  I just closed Barb's cookie room today but will leave my Christmas decorations up for a while. You know how I love Christmas and decorating.  We will be in Cedar Rapids, IA tonite for a wedding. Will always remember that 7 yrs. ago you flew up to heavin on angel wings and you walk and talk with Jesus everyday and keep telling us not to worry about you but we miss you so much. Love Mom"

"Another Christmas without you in body but your spirit is always with us.Sam and Nick came out last weekend and we had our Christmas on Sunday the 20th. Deanna, Barb & Susan were with us also as well as Mary Ellen, Missy, Lauren, Carter, Madison Jaron and GramaGreat. We opened our gifts year by Birthday months and you were the first one followed by Lauren and Dad was last but not the least. I gave a donation to Children's Miracle Network in honor of our family and in memory of you and Dave.  Your beautiful daughter works hard all year raising money and planning events to help many different children. We are so proud of her. College is going great for her and Nick is doing great at JJC and of course made the baseball team. So wish you were her to see all of their accomplishments.  They brighten our lives and bring us much joy. GramaGreat is still going strong at 98 and we had another family Christmas at her house and we all watched her open all of her gifts before we dug into ours. Dad and I had Christmas dinner with her and started putting another puzzle together which is a great pastime with her. We had no snow for Christmas this year but that made traveling easier.  I remember some of the snow storms you drove in to get to Grandmas house in Ashton. Such wonderful memories we have of those time. My heart still aches for you and Dave you both loved Christmas so much, so it always a happy sad time for me.  Love and miss you but know you are watching over us each day with your beautiful smile and caring ways. Mom and Dad too!!"

"It is hard to believe 6 yrs. have gone by since your beautiful celebration of life at St. Paul's Church. The church was packed with all your family, friends and parents of your pre-schoolers. Father Greg did a beautiful life presenting your life to us and your words at the end. It's okay it will be alright. Your children have grown into caring, giving and kind young adults. You would be proud of them and the way that Dino has let them choose their own paths. Your special friend Laura wrote a beautiful tribute, she is so good about putting into words who you were and what you have meant to so many. She has been a source of joy and comfort when ever we get to see her. It is a cold winter night but it warms my heart to remember the special daughter you were. Love, Mom"

"It is amazing that you have been my friend for 50 years! Your children are making sure that our friendship continues in your absence! What a blessing they are to all of us! Of course seeing them isn't the same as having your here to visit. I am so thankful that they want to see us. It is harder with their schedules. They are beautiful, kind and easy going. I believe that we are a blessing to them as well. We love them and thank you for showing them our devotion to one another. Life is busy but I think of you everyday, wondering what advice you might give me for my classroom, ideas we could share and just share life! It is amazing how we have gone on without you, thinking we couldn't but we know you would want us to be happy. I miss your unassuming nature, lack of anger, simplicity and contentment! I will always love you and keep your memory alive in my words and my heart! Your forever friend, Laura"

"50 yrs. ago we welcomed you into our family. You were named Mary Ann by your Daddy. As you grew older you wanted to be called Mary, Dino fondly called you Mar and last you were Mrs. Marconi to all your precious pre-schoolers.Dad and I will always remember being at your last Christmas program in 2007. You were like a mother-hen to all your little ones. You brought so much joy to our family and we still miss you at all the family get-togethers. Sam should be getting home from her work project in Nicaragua soon and we are anxious to hear all about it. Nick is starting his last semester of H.S. and baseball workouts will be starting too. We so enjoy going to his games and fondly remember all the little league games at Whiteford with you. You were so loved by everyone. Remember Lynn Wolz sitting in the shade reading Harry Potter. Well she has become one of our special friends because of you.She has helped us so much on our grief journey. Deanna is recovering from back surgery and we are thankful that is going to be ok. We were with her and Barb for 2 wks. in Dec. Susan has moved to Florida and loving it. She has finally healed from Dave's death. We miss him everyday too. But remember all the good times and how he could make us all laugh. Grama-great will be 98 in May and as you said in David's eulogy she is an amazing women. Still independent as ever. As we enter 2015 we pray for good health and faith, family and friends to help us with our journey. Miss you, Love and Hugs Mom"
