Working with Mary at Tic-Tock for 35 years was a pleasure. We made a lot of good memories together. I know Angelo and my husband Joseph greeted her in heaven with a smile.

Sonny, though we never met your mother, we remember hearing about her when you came to our Folsom farm to work on our horses. What a beautiful long life she had. I know you will miss her as she was such a big part of your life to the end. Love and prayers for you and all the family. Linda and Rob Byrne
