    I worked with mary many years at Hagales we had so much fun together. Once when she lived at ponce we bought walunt cracker I couldn’t get mine to work so I went to her house in ponce and she couldn’t get hers to work we would always laugh and talk about it. Last year I went to the nursing home and saw her still we had a good laugh. She did sewing for me sweet lady.
