Was most fortunate to first meet Mary Dohey years ago in mid-1970s shortly after she was awarded the Cross of Valor and later escorted her to a special night of the Canadian Society of Military Medals & Insignia where she was our special guest wearing her Cross of Valour, was greeted warmly by all in attendance, spoke to the assembled group and thoroughly enjoyed herself on that memorable evening even though Mary normally did not attend such events - Mary was a most marvelous, kind, generous lady everyone would like to meet and know - Had just now been made aware of her sad departure from the scene although it should be noted here Mary lived a very happy and tremendously fulfilling life - As one would expect of such a unique person she will be thoroughly missed forever by all those of us who knew her and were all extremely fond of - REMEMBRANCE -
