Mary was a loving sister and a very special friend to many. She was always smiling, joking and very happy. Mary was a very talented writer and poet. The environment was very important to her. She enjoyed working on crafts, hiking, music and especially loved spending time with her friends. Mary never let any circumstance hold her back, she set big goals and did not know the word impossible. She was beautiful inside and out.
