Roger we are so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. Mary was a great teacher and friend. She was responsible for a lot of kids in Pulaski and other school districts grow in their education because of her love of teaching. Mary was able to help Jessica further her education by her patience and understanding her problems. She will be missed by a lot of people. You will be in our prayers and turn to the Lord when you feel you are alone. He will be with you always.
