    We Remember
    By the children of Mary Elizabeth Scott

    Upon the rising sun and at it’s going down; We remember her.
    When flowers bloom and in the rebirth of spring; We remember her.
    In our weary moments, in need of strength; We remember her.
    When we are lost and sick at heart; We remember her.
    In times of indecision in search of discernment; We remember her.
    When we have joy we crave to share; We remember her.
    When we have dreams that become achievements; We remember her.
    When it is time to invoke her spirit of wisdom, responsibility, strength, consistency, generosity, compassion, practicality and appreciation; We remember her
    For as long as we all live, she too will live, for she is now a part of us as, We remember her.

    Condolences and prayers being sent to the children and family of Aunt Mary, it was a joy being able to share a bond with her and understanding some of her wisdom. It is different when you are the patient instead of the nurse. Aunt Mary knew what she did and didn’t want. RIP, you will be missed in many ways, God bless you all.

    Otilia so sorry for the loss of your mother Mary. This is Kathy Adams your neighbor from Somerville Ma. I was going through some papers and found a Xmas card your mother had sent to my father in 2014, however both my parents had already passed on.
    I just wanted to say hello. I have very found memories of you and your mom. I hope all is well with you. I live in Methuen. I’m a nurse and I have a 31 yr old son.
    Take care.
    Kathy Adams
