We both offer our condolences to you and your family. We are thankful for having the opportunity of getting to know Mary. She was a very gracious and kind person. She will be missed greatly by all who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.
I worked with Mary many years ago at the Nestle call center in Las Colinas. I have run into her several times over the last several years and it seemed that we picked up right where we left off. She was a very special person and I will miss her deeply. One thing I know for sure is that she loved her family more than anything and you are all better human beings because of her. You are all in Karen and my thoughts and prayers.
Mary was a joy and a delight to work with. She always wore a smile and had a radiance about her that lit up the room. She will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
I loved working with Miss Mary. I could always go into her office if I needed to talk and I loved hugging her neck. Our HR Department was hit very hard with her loss and we have been left with a huge void. We will truely miss her witty charm and humor. I love you, Mary Quinn!!
Mary was a lovely, kind, helpful, caring and thoughtful person who will be greatly missed by all who ever had the pleasure of interacting with her. Peace be with you all.
Over time the pain of the loss turns to the remembrance of treasured memories. Hope that you and the family can reflect back on those memories. I speak from experience.
