Dear Brenda, Becky and the rest of your families, it broke our hearts on the news of Ms. Mary Ann's passing. We loved her ever since she was our neighbor back in Melville many years ago. She always had that beautiful smile and was always a joy to be around when we visited her. What a great reunion it must have been when she joined Mr. Ralph again. She will never be forgotten and will always be in our thoughts and prayers! Love you all....Carol, mom and family

Oh my. How sad for your family but how glorious for Mary Ann! Those of us left behind will have to continue to tell ourselves that. Boy will she be missed. Loved by EVERYONE who ever knew her. I had such a short time to have her in my life but oh how I cherished our friendship. The only way I could stand for my Chabarria children to live so far away from me was truly due to knowing you Prudhomme girls. I love you all and please know you are in my prayers. I loved Mary Ann. She was so special. May God bless you with a special peace.
