    May God’s Peace and Love surround Karen and Brian and their family as they mourn the loss of their beloved mom. MaryAnn was always kind-hearted and sweet to me and my children when we stayed up north. And to our surprise we were right next door with all the times growing up. She was an excellent cook and she and Alan always had open arms. They shared lots of laughs with all who stopped by. My prayers and love for MaryAnn, always.
