May God mend the hole in your hearts at this very sad time.
I thought the mass was beautiful and Fr. David's eulogy of Mari tied in with the scripture reading, "You are the salt of the earth". Indeed, Mari added extra special flavoring to each of you in her lifetime. Imagine her influence now, as she rests divinely in heaven! Keeping you close in thought and prayer. Love, Mary Guerriero Herr, SC. (Former IHM band member with Mari back in 1970) and Michael Herr (Mike the Mailman, PSU)

I was sad to hear of Mari's passing. We knew each other only briefly during our early college years at Marywood and I admired her knowing what path in life to take long before I did. My heart goes out to her family who I know she cherished beyond words. I hope the memories you created together will bring you comfort and peace.
