    My sweet dear friend Mary. I am so happy we got to talk not long ago and so sad I did not make it state side to see before you decided to gain your wings and fly to Heaven. I will always cherish all the fun times we had growing up and mischief times. I’ll never forget laying out in your parents yard with the big bom box, baby oil and chatting. The times we spent walking the halls together at school. Us cutting through the woods that split 123 and 231 to bike ride and be children with out a worry in the world. I’ll always miss you my dear beautiful friend. I love you deeply. The memories I have of you I will cherish for eternity. The world lost a beautiful lady with a speldid soul and groovy personality.
    I wish so bad I could hug you one last time. I will miss you my friend. Fly high my friend. I love you

    To the family and friends of Mary Childree, I am truly sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved one is very painful. The bible promises a wonderful hope for our loved ones who have died. The scriptures found at John 5:28,29 and Revelations 21:3,4 promise that our loved ones can live again and when they do it will be in better conditions. I pray that you find comfort and that Jehovah will sustain you during this difficult time.
