Mary was a beautiful person and a very dear friend of mine. Even though
I moved away from Pittsburgh, I would always visit her and Frank. My loss is very great. I praise the Lord for giving me the chance to know her.
May she rest in peace.
My condolences to her great family.

Mary was a beautiful woman inside and out. I met her when my mother moved to Cloverleaf 5 yrs ago. Her and my mother developed and instant bond. No matter the pain she was in, she always had a bright smile. I will miss seeing her but have wonderful memories of her. My condolences to her family. Mary was a one of a kind classy woman.

Mary was a lovely, sweet lady. I knew her for many years, She was thoughtful and kind and was part of the Sosso family, after marrying Big Daddy. Although they got divorced, Mary still kept in touch. I am sorry to hear of her passing and wish her family peace as they grieve. This is a beautiful picture of Mary.
