  16. To Mary Lorette ‘s immediate family and extended family, I am so sorry for the loss of your wife, your mother, your sister, your aunt, and your grandmother
    . To me she was a cousin and a great member of the Mabou community who always had a wonderful smile for all and a how are you wheather you met her at the store, the post office or in the hall, her second home.
    To my immediate family she will always be associated with a great fest, be that a thanksgiving dinner, a wedding celebration, a fundraiser or a meal after a family members funeral. Beyond the great skill and taste and time that such fests required, there was a whole lot of love and care that went into every event and meal. I know because I could hear it, see it and taste it and all of us who were so lucky to partake in one of her meals knew it as well..We have been so blessed to eat at her table for all these many years in joy, in celebration and sorrow.
    . May the good Lord prepare a spectacular banquet for Mary Lorette .
    I so wish i was able to attend her Celebration tomorrow, I will be there in my thoughts and prayers, Love to all
    Joan (Archie) Rankin
