How little we mortals know those close to us. I worked across the hall from Mary Ann for three years, and looking back I see that I was so bound up in my own problems that I did not know her. She always stood out for her creativity and ready smile, but the real Mary Ann must have been much deeper. If she sees us now, I hope she knows how well she was loved.
