I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Maryann. She is a cherished life long friend. I have many, many fond memories of her. Even as the years went by and we didn't see or speak to each other for a while, we always picked up where we left off like it was yesterday. Farewell my friend. I will see you again. My condolences to the family and the children. You had an awesome Mom.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mikayla and her family. Meghan and Mikayla played softball together a few years ago and we got to know her family. Her mother was always a sweetheart. Our heart hurts for everyone. Many prayers and love being sent from us to her family.

I was so saddened to hear of Maryann's passing.
I lost track of Her after we went to different high schools, so I haven't seen her for years.
I have fantastic memories of us being friends and playing town softball in Penbrook when we were younger, for this I am grateful. She was a good person and fun to be around. And she was an AWESOME first basemen!!!!!!

Maryann, your family is beautiful just like you.
Gods speed.
