The Family of the Late Mary Tucker,
Our prayers and condolences in the loss of your loved one, Mary, who was a loving Mother, Grandmother and Friend. Have many wonderful memories of your Mom when growing up in St. Philip”s and of course at School with Lana when we spent so much time after school at the Tucker house trying to do our homework. Remember Alec getting Mary to stand upon the “Stage” and sing for us. See her now laughing and having fun. And getting of the school bus missing some of our garments trailing behind us. Your Mother would say, “wait till I see that John, he is going to know it.”
For it all, your Mother lived to be a wonderful age and enjoyed her long years just the way she wanted. She loved her family unconditionally, and her family (children) loved her the same. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her and shared with her along the way, and more especially she will be missed by her Family. We now must let Mary take her rest commending her into the love and care of our God and Father and in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life in Christ. “May her rest b e in Peace and her dwelling Place be in the Paradise of God.” Farewell, Go now upon thy journey to your heavenly home.
Love to all the Family,
John and Cynthia Sharpe
