Marys’ Auntie Mary died yesterday in Scotland . She was 91 years old. We heard the news yesterday from Cousin Brian down in California. He and his sister Karin (over at her summer place in Turkey), are heading home for the ceremonies and taking care of the final arrangements..

Auntie Mary was an original… She was born July 17, 1915 in Glasgow. She lived most of her life in Glasgow, later moving to East Kilbride. We visited with her off and on when we lived in the UK. She was famous for a wickedly delicious sense of Gaelic humour, and in my case giving bad traffic directions. She once had us going up the M73 in the wrong direction, luckily that Scotch she had plied us with for the last 3 hours had not addled me to the point of not recognizing the fact that the oncoming vehicles were in the same lane…. 8o)

She was full of life, very active and lived on her own until last year. She will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved her.

Our sympathy goes out to Brian and Karin, and to Karin’s children.
