Randy, I am so sorry for you and your families loss! Mary was a great person and was always super nice with Danielle my daughter and I. She sure had a way with kids! No matter how many times Danielle wanted to come in and hold a puppy or ferret she was always happy to let her. I will miss seeing and talking with her a lot. I pray that God will give everyone comfort and peace thru this difficult time!

We are very saddened to hear of Mary's passing. She was one of the first people we met 3 yrs ago when we moved to Kansas and from day one she always treated us kindly. She will be very missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Randy and the rest of his family at this time of sadness.

I know i already said somthing but i just got so much more to say. I remember coming in to the petshop when I was upset or angry and you helped me calm down and how working with the animals calmed me down. I remember working with the rats, mice, and hamsters that was one of my favorite things to do in the pet shop. I love how you treated me like family and always let me come into the

So many years of memories, I don't even know where to begin. The Summers full of watermelon and fireworks. Helping with the Dogs and of course when she decided to give us BigBoy. I remember how she made homemade bread and introduced my brother and I to eating it with butter and jelly! What a woman! I thank you Randy for sharing her with all of my family!

To Mary's Family, My son, Wiley, had Mary for a teacher and just loved her. She was firm but kind and taught him alot. For several summers, he worked at the firecracker stands. Talk about a kids' dream job. He loved it. When I called him In Oakland to let him know that she had died, he was so sad. She helped shape a young man. My thoughts are with you. Laraine Erickson.
