    To The Helgemo Family,
    It is with deepest sympathy that I send this note to you. I got to know Mary when I’d visit my mother at Bishop Noa Home. Mary took such good care of my mom and all of the residents at Bishop Noa Home. She made their lives better on a daily basis. She was so very kind and caring … and she always found the time to help anyone who needed assistance. Helping others is what Mary was all about. She made a difference in the lives of so many. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult and sad time.
