Aunt Mary, you will be remembered for being beautiful both inside and out. You were the personification of a Tucholski - a kind and fun person who loved her family. My heart goes out to your sons, daughter-in-laws, grandchildren, and great-grand childre. And at the end of our phone conversations you always said " That's all I know"....

What a great neighbor to have. We are already the poorer because of her departure. Sweet and kind, a pleasure to know.
