    My words can not describe how I feel about Mabel Gary and her family. She will be missed so much. I believe she is now in the presence of our savior whom she so dearly loved and trusted, and also so many others including my parents that have gone before her. Together they are rejoicing in Gods presence. Prayers for peace and understanding.
