    My Aunt, Mary Ann Parmley was one of the sweetest souls that ever graced this planet. To say that she’s missed is a such an understatement, there are no valid words. What she’s done for the community, her family and friends is an example of how to treat others. I’ve yet to meet anyone who comes close to her loving and charming demeanor and personality. I love you. I miss you. May God bless you.
