Dear Hoover Family, John and I are so sorry for the trying times you are going
through. Mary lived a long and happy life. I never saw her unhappy, unless she
couldn't find Sammy! May you find comfort in your memories.

Tom and I were sorry to hear of Marys death. We always enjoyed seeing her in
church, singing the hymns with no hymnal. We rejoice in her long and interesting
life and share your grief. This has been a hard time for all the Hoover family.
Thinking of you.
Fondly, Donna & Tom Kauffman.
