To the family of Mary Harralson - Please accept my deepest sympathies in the passing of this wonderful lady. She loved her family with all her heart-when she spoke of her children she was so proud of every one of them. Her faith was unfailing and saw her through all the highs and lows of life. Through your loss and grieving, I hope you are able to celebrate her wonderful life and be so very thankful she was your Mom.
