Dear John, Chris, Nick, and Stephanie, We all send our deepest sympathies for the loss of your wonderful wife and mother. She had the brightest smile and easiest laugh and most open heart. We have such fond memories of Mary from our many years together at the St. B-skiing, dining, talking, laughing, singing, dancing. What a force of fun and love she was! She was the center that joined all of the diverse St. B families together and helped us grow tender friendships. We Gaudins loved seeing her in Lubbock and Austin, too. She delighted in each of you so, so much. Her family was everything to her, as you know. Her last text exchange with me in January was full of delight in your accomplishments. Your lives are the greatest testaments to her own loving work as a mother and a wife.

I’m so sorry for your family’s loss, it’s hard to comprehend! I went to Mt Carmel with Mary. My family knew all the DeCelie’s. I have fond memories of my classmates from way back when including Mary. She was a jokester. After we graduated some of still got together just being goofy. I remember Mary teasing me that I had crow’s feet around my eyes (I was what 14! Geez to think then I had wrinkles🙃). I’ve watched her grow afar through Facebook and have always been impressed with her accomplishments and more importantly her family! I know it’s hard as I just lost my mom four months ago, but she left quite a legacy! There’s nothing that can replace a mom, a friend, a sister or brother. She will always be there in your hearts. God bless all of you through these trying times! Keep and trust in your faith!

Our prayers and love to Mary’s family. We love Mary and are heartbroken. My last conversation with Mary in May she told me how proud she was of her children and how happy she was to have John by her side. She is now home with God. They whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before. They are now wherever we are, Saint John Chrysostom. Love from the Broderick Family

Mary, I will miss you every day. I am broken hearted. I have so many wonderful memories that I will hold close to my heart: riding the waves at Seaside Heights, walking the Bunny path at Notre Dame Academy, cheering you as you played Basketball, spaghetti dinners, summers in Lubbock, Skiing in Santa Fe, all the wonderful meals around our tables, and the joy of our growing families. I love you very much.
