    Where do I begin MJ…so many memories we shared over the past 20 yrs. Even when our friendship drifted for a bit, we came back stronger then ever!! You showed me the true definition of a Real friend. Just thinking of all the memories, not only did we have so much fun together, You protected me. With you around, as selfish as it sounds, I was careless because I knew You had my back, You wouldn’t let a fly touch me. And when You gave me those pep talks, knowing I was going to do the opposite of what you said, You were there to catch me, even before I fell…. towards the end I know I wasn’t there like I should have been, but we had our understanding and I’m very thankful. Thank You MaryJean for coming into my life, now You will forever be my guardian angel. Rest Peacefully my dear…Xo

    It’s still hard to believe you’re gone…Though I know you are free of any pain a part of me still wishes you were here. MJ you have always been a strong beautiful women. You always made sure people around you were okay before worrying about yourself. The first time I met you, you made sure I was ok & you didn’t even know me. That’s how I knew you were amazing. Even though we weren’t close we still had the most amazing convos when we did get together. I can’t wait to see you again to have more of those amazing conversations & you can give me awesome advice like you used to before…Until then Rest in Paradise my beautiful friend…Love you Mary Jean

    I miss you Maryjean. I cried today and I can still hear your laugh in my ear calling me your jules. Hugging me and telling me it’s going to be ok. You were an amazing mother, aunt, sister lover and friend. I’ll always love you for telling me I’m going to make it. You never put anyone down and that makes you the greatest person in my eyes. I love you Maryjean.
