My thoughts and prayers go out to the Guralny family at this time. All the years I have known "Mrs. G" are the years I will never forget. She always made me smile and laugh whenever I had a bad day, and there will never be another person who would go out of her way and light up the room with her brilliant personality. She will always have a special place in my heart forever. Rest in Peace, Mrs. G!

Hi Eric and Family,
This is a very sad time for you and your loved ones. From the stories you told me, I'm sure your mom was an awesome lady. My heart and prayers goes out to you and your family during this time. If there is anything I can do call me.
Love you so much! Lots of hugs!
Feb 25.12 from Gina Mair:
She is Gone
You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she's gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
(David Harkins 1981)
Rest in Peace, Mary.
Thinking of you and your family at this time.
Your cousin Gina Mair (in England)
