    Many wonderful memories of growing up in Cherry Creek and having Mary Reynolds as a neighbor and a childhood friend. We had a fun group of girls that spent a lot of time together. We taught each other how to dance by listening to old 45 records. We pierced each other’s ears with a needle and thread. A game us girls like to play was Pull-the-Bag in the cemetery at night in the summer. So many fun memories. May the family be comforted by wonderful memories also.

    My deepest condolences to Mary’s family. Rest now dearest Mary. I am grateful to have known you. Many moons ago, with your easy-going nature, you and Dave helped welcome me into a small community I wasn’t born into. Thank you. You were kind with a wonderful sense of humor. You were always so proud of your family, your legacy. Rest now dearest Mary.
