    My Heart and Condolences are with the Rodriguez Family, Mary's Friend and All who Loved her.  I'm lifting you all up in Prayer.  Mary was a Bright Shining Light to her Family. From the very first day I met her, she was Loving and Caring. She always spoke her mind and was so funny too!  She was Beautiful, Strong and had so much Wisdom.  I'm fortunate to have had a chance to know her and her family. She was a Blessing to so many. Love you Rodriguez Family. Love you Mary and will miss you so much. God Bless, Danny Bell
