Mary is a great person, to people and to animals. I have never seen her once turn her back on a friend in need, and she would give you the last cent she had if you needed it.

Mary- I haven't known you for a long time but I have had the pleasure of working side by side at the PAWS in the Park as well at our group functions and you are such a hard working, devoted individual. I am proud that you received this honor and you are fully deserving! Verne
