My sympathy to all of Mary Ann's family, she was my hairdresser for over 40 years and she became a great friend. We had many great visits when she was doing my hair.

We extend our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to all of Mary Ann's family. We were blessed to have met her and Jack more than 30 years ago. Her love, warmth and generous hospitality blessed us and our family immensely. She has now joined the Heavenly choir and is dancing before her Lord and Saviour along with those gone before her. What a reunion that would have been! May God grant you the strength, peace and comfort that you need during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
