    Karen, Larry and family I am so sorry. She and my mother were close friends for years. I’m sure they are up in Heaven catching up now:-)

      I agree. They’re having great times together. The dementia much away from Mary but it made our hearts jump for joy when she would recognize that we were people who loved her. Names weren’t that important. We lived for those time when her face would light up and she would shout,” that’s my man!” To Larry. Karen is in the nursing home in Mulberry. Has been for a couple of months, cancer.

    To the family of Mary Brandenburg. Your mom/grandma was a joy to have known. She was always bragging about her kids and most of all her grandchildren. I missed her when she moved to Clinton. But shortly after we move to Kokomo. I still have a lot of the camping stuff that she had in her yard sale. It is with a sad heart that she has passed on.

    I am so sorry to hear of Marys’s passing. My family have been her neighbors for almost 30 years. I always enjoyed talking to her about her flowers and also bought Avon from her occasionally. My deepest condolences to the family.

    Karen ,Larry , Rob and Family: Mary was a very sweet friend and neighbor. I always enjoyed visiting with her if she didnt stop by my house I would go down to hers. She would always call asking what I was doing and asked if I was coming over today to see her. I loved our talks and listening to her stories. Or just walking in her yard. Loved her garage sales She knew I would buy alot. She sure knew how to sale things even if you didnt need them she convinced you ,,you did. Always call me Kid. Miss her so much. Fly high my dear sweet friend♥️
