One day, Mary and I were sitting on her front porch. A squirrel came up to the porch and looked at us. Mary said hi Bob. I looked at her and said Bob? She said yes I named him and thats Bob. Bob ran off up the tree. Another squirrel came up and Mary said, hi Bob. I looked at her and she started laughing she said she names all of them Bob. She had a great sense of humor. I miss her smile and her laughter.

Woke up to a reminder that today mom has been gone a whole year. And I couldn't think of a better way to honor her than to post some pictures of my kids knowing they are here because of her. She set me on the path to where I am and I will forever be grateful. I love you mom. I wish you could have met them.

Today and the last few days I've been wishing I could call Mary and talk to her. I miss my big sister. I would love to play rummy with her again. The last game we played was a word game where you pick a word and see how many words you could get out of it, we did it over the phone. I always lost but it was fun. When I was little, remember Mary pulling me in a wagon, skating on metal skates, playing jacks... Mary yelled at me one time I will never forget it because I cried. She felt so bad she hugged me and said she was sorry. (I miss her hugs.) She never yelled at me again. I love you so much and I will see you on the other side of the moon.

My dear sister was a little Momma and protector of me in my childhood. I will be forever grateful for that. I will miss her tender heart, her loving words, and her sense of humor.. I love you sister and I am so sorry for all the loss, pain and heartache you endured in your lifetime. Im proud of you for not letting all of that harden your heart. I will love you forever pumpkin. I will see you heaven one day where I hope we play hop scotch together again. XXOOXX

I had just started building my relationship with her again. I am so glad that I was able to speak with her and get close to her again before she passed. I just wish that I wouldn't of waited as long as I did. I didn't get to tell her I loved her or that I understood why she had to do what she had to do. So Mom, I love you. And I am so sorry I didn't call you that last week when I was supposed to. I knew I should of I just thought that I would have more time with you. I will miss you Mom. Rest easy.

I just found out about Mary Today, Every once in a while I Google her name and look to see if maybe she's on Facebook, Well Today  I found her
I worked with her at Cessna Aircraft , And then I discovered that she lived just down the street from me on Market, Next to the Longfellow School where my kids went ,  Wow, were neighbors  !
 Yes Mary always had a smile on her face, anytime I needed help with reading a blueprint , figuring out  how a part went together or even borrowing a tool, she was happy to assist , many days when she felt bad she would still be friendly with a smile , She was a real sweetheart .
I read some of the stories on here and about her life, then pictures......Wonderful  memories  . BUT then  I recognized  one person.........I thought Who is that  ?Oh yes !!   I used to be a janitor at Bishop Carroll back in the 80's....and my family and I used to clean up the Football Field the next day after a game 
I believe its  David  i recognized  , gosh , I wished I would have known this while we worked side by side at our work bench , we could of told some good stories about Bishop Carroll 
     FAMILY , I'M SO SORRY TO HEAR OF HER PASSING AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE. , I'm 10 years older than her.

My oldest sister Mary and I were ten years apart, but we were so close. We spent a lot of time together before life got in the way. She loved to play games and spend time with family. She loved to play Monopoly and she would always win lol. It was very hard to beat her at Monopoly, that was her game! Mary, Lucy and I would get together and have margaritas and play rummy, poker, yahtzee...lots of games. So many hours spent together...wonderful memories. Mary and I would go visit our mom together and play word games and dice with her. Mom loved us coming over. Mary deserved a lot more in life than she received, but it never turned her bitter. She always had a smile, a hug and an I love you ready to give to everyone. You went too soon Mary, and I'm having a really hard time accepting it. Last night I had a thought I should call you, like so many times before. And then I was like, oh right, I can't. I will miss you so much and I'll forever wish I had been able to spend more time with you the last few years. I love you big sis.❤❤

The Christian Concert that Wasn't

Shared by Eric Ferguson on March 25, 2021
I was home from school on summer break and my Sister told me that she had bought me a ticket to a Christian concert she wanted to attend because Dad would not let her go without me. After Dad dropped us off at the Kansas Coliseum, Mary came clean that the tickets were for the Styx Mr. Roboto concert.  Mary knew that Styx was one of my favorite bands. I don't think she knew that Styx was my favorite band at the time. I was very surprised, excited, and I thought it was pretty clever that she was able to convince my dad that it was a Christian band.  It was also the very first rock concert and I got to attend with my sister. The concert was great. The atmosphere was…festive, smokey, smoke that didn't smell like cigarettes.  LOL.  It was quite an experience.
