  1. Ted and I are sending lots of love and prayers to you and your family. Heaven gained a new angel to watch over us.

  2. In the short 11 months I knew Mary she became one of my very dearest friends. I’m so sad to lose her but so relieved she’s at peace with our dear Lord and her beloved Paul. Rest in Peace Mary, you will always be in my heart.

  3. Those of us who are St. Bart’s Players know Mary through her daughter, Hope. Mary became a fixture in our audiences, always cheering her daughter on, and winning all of our hearts through the delicious cookies and treats she’d bake for the casts of whatever show Hope was involved with to eat. We always devoured every bite, never leaving so much as a crumb for the church mice to eat! Her wide, loving smile shined like a beacon. And her love for her children—and, later, her grandchildren was obvious for all to see. We will all miss her.

    My heart, thoughts and prayers are with Hope, Joe , Tom and their families.
    Love,

  7. Hope,

    I am very sorry for your loss. Having lost my mom sometime ago, I can tell you, there are no words to explain the suffering a child feels for the passing of his/her mother. But, with time, it heals, and perspective kicks in. You need to stay strong and healthy, for you, and your husband, and for Violet. You will be ok, I promise.

  8. To the children of Mary Landry:

    For the last 3.5 years, your late mother used to send to our office in NYC, a delivery of home-baked chocolate cookies. She was most gracious and generous to do this, once a month, not knowing any of us!

    My prayers and thoughts are with you, during these sad times.

    With kind regards.
