When thinking of Mary one parable comes to mind “The Good Samaritan”. Mary always had an open-door policy at her home, everyone was welcome; if you were hungry she fed you, if you were tired she gave you a place to rest; If you needed a little pocket change no problem she’d hand over that last dollar. She had a tremendous love for children and a caring nature, to all the neighborhood kids she was affectionately known as Grandma.
Mary enjoyed listening to music, crocheting, and baking, and don’t forget driving around town catching up on all the news.
