    I got to know Mae at the Day Away in Wiarton. Loved her Irish Humour!! I saw her a couple of times when I was visiting at Kelso Villa also. What a neat lady!

    Christene and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. She was a very special sassy Lady and I will miss her dearly. From her love of black coffee, “fill it to the top” and toast and honey. How much she loved her hair brushed and her singing of, A Glasgow Saturday night. ” I’m Mae, I’m only Mary on Sundays. ĪShe was the older lady I hope to be.
