Condolence: Jim - I'm very sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Mary from the Christmas parties at ACC that you and she hosted, and I was always appreciative of the behind the scenes work that she did organizing the Riley Robin. Best wishes to you and your family.

Condolence: Mary was the first Deming family member I met, after falling in love with Jane in fall,1973 at BC. She and Jim invited us to have a home cooked meal at their home in Burlington, a welcome invitation for 2 college freshman tired of the Saga meal plan.Whatever food Mary prepared was delicious, I am sure, and their home was warm and inviting. (I have a picture or 2 from that visit). And, I guess the report on me was positive enough to refer me onto Dr and Mrs Deming, despite my long, frizzy hair!

I have known Mary, Jim, Jay and Chris my entire adult life, alot of years.Not so long ago, Mary and Taylor travelled to our home in Colorado and then toured Colorado with Jane. What a special gift and time together. I am so glad they did that! It reminds me of the importance of not delaying special moments and connections with others.

How wonderful to see Mary, just a few short weeks ago, gorgeous, walking proudly with Jim up the aisle for Chris and Julie’s wedding! I will always savor these moments and many others over the decades.
Jim, Jay, Chris and families- may you find peace and comfort amidst your grief and know that you are never alone during this time of loss.
