Jim and family,

I had the pleasure of working with Mary at McCarty Printing and she was so pleasant, genuinely kind and helpful to everyone. She had a carefree spirit and a warmhearted laugh.
We always talked about cats and exchanged pics of our kitties. I will miss Mary and she was one of a kind.

Kim Erie, PA
