Mary-Ann had been one of my closest friends and one of the most wonderful persons I knew. Words cannot express my sorrow for her family and for her, not being able to continue her life with her beloved John, Allie and Hunter.

Mary-Ann and I became friends while at Purdue. A year older than me, she took me under her wings and was a great source of encouragement and friendship. Later, when I had some surgery, she sent a box of surprises for so that I'd have a present to open every day. This was just like her, so thoughtful. We kept in close touch through the birth of our children, and unfortunately, as too often happens, lost contact when Allie and Hunter were about 4. I've missed her friendship, our phone calls full of laughter, and her sage advice. Now I shall find solace knowing that she is feeling the best she's ever felt and is home with Jesus. I pray that her family continues as Mary-Ann would have wanted, and remembers that Mary-Ann is with them every day of their life as their Angel.
