I got to know Mary on the pilgrimage we took to Rome, October, 2015 with the St. Mark’s Catholic Deaf Community. I got to know what a wonderful person she was and how much she loved her family. I was also amazed at her determination to not let anything stop her even though she needed to use a walker. My deepest sympathies to her Family and St. Mark’s Catholic Deaf Community.

May Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let Perpetual Light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the Faithfully Departed Rest in Peace. Amen
