Dear Spencer family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Mary. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

I am so upset that my dear friend, Mary, has passed away without my knowing she was ill. We have been friends for a long time since high school. She was a sweet, caring person and I will always remember our wonderful times together. My condolences go out to her family and husband during this difficult time. She had many friends and I am so shocked that she has passed away. She was a Christian and I know I will see her in heaven some day! Mary, you have gone to your reward and I pray that you are rejoicing in the Lord!

So sad to hear of Mary’s passing. I have so many memories from growing up spending time with Mike and their house on Samaritan, and Mary was always so kind. My sincerest condolences to Mike, Debbie, and David - so sorry for your loss.
