My sister will be dearly missed. I have many great memory's of my sister and her family. My granddaughter Bella and I visited Mary on our way home a couple years ago and were introduced to the new litter of kittens. Mary let Bella name some of them and the one she named sweetie Mary ended up keeping. One of the last times we visited, Mary shared that she really enjoyed our visit and I reminded her how the visit made a wonderful impression on Bella. Interestingly Mary told me to tell Bella that she had to rename sweetie to bandit because she was always taking things and hiding them in her secret stash. I'm sure Terry's 80th birthday will be extra special now that they are reunited.

Mary Beth was always welcoming. Her love and warmth met you with that smile of hers. She was always "there" for people. My Mom (JoAnne) told me one time that as a little girl Mary Beth prayed for brothers . . . a lot . . . and she welcomed each one of you. As to the Mackey Talk-a-thon? If you listen you can hear them. And Uncle Zunk, Uncle Carl and the Zunker boys are leaning back letting her have center stage.

We all loved her. So pretty and so much fun. We will miss her and I believe too that the Mackeys are very excited to welcome her home.

Mary and her brother Richard grew up together living the "Dream". They had all the attention of the Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles to themselves. Years later, 4 more Brothers arrived and she had to share that attention. Not only that, being the only Daughter she helped raise her younger Brothers. It was obvious that Mary was cherished, our parents took so many pictures of our Sister growing up, compared the Zunker Boys!! Having a big Sister to help care for us was a blessing for us and our parents, not sure they could have pulled it off successfully without Mary Beth being the responsible older Sister. When we look at all our family pictures, one observation is totally clear, Mary was always happy, smiling and laughing. Not just a "smile for the picture", but a true inner happiness that comes from being Loved! We will miss our Sister Deeply, but rejoice knowing that she once again will have all the attention from the family that preceded her. In my minds eye I can picture a non-stop Mackey Talk-a-thon as they all welcome our Sister home.
