My apologies for the tardiness in this message, I have just found out that your Mother has passed. Please accept my most sincere thoughts for the entire Posewitz family during these tough times.

Dear Posewitz Family, I was so saddened to read about Mary passing. She was the sweetest person. She had a smile for everyone. She was always friendly when I would see her at Jackson events or at IC at mass. She will be missed. Cherish you wonderful memories. I wish I could be there in person but Tom and I are in Virginia spending time with our son and family. Celebrate her life well. She was a gem! Sincerely, Pat Grams
