Mary was such a sweet lady, cousin of my mother Ann Ciglar Begg.
I am very happy that I was able to meet her.
Sincere condolences,

Condolences to the family. Our Mom was Mary’s first cousin, but, unfortunately, I’d never had the pleasure of meeting her. I do recall loving memories of her Mom, TETA Pepa while visiting our grandparents in Bothwell.
Love, Susan (Begg) Critelli

Mary, we think of you often and miss you very much the past few years. Glad that you are at peace but the world was better with you in it. Always think of pink flowers when we think of you. Love, Anne-Marie and Ian
