Always loved talking to Mary. She was such a positive person, always smiling. I know her family is going to really miss her.

Was so sorry to hear of Mrs. Kerr's passing. She was our librarian at J.H. Carter Elem. when I was there as a student, many years ago. she always had a smile on her face and was kind to all who entered the library. Lots of fond memories flood my mind. Just wanted the family to know that they are in my thoughts and prayers. After all of those years, I never knew that Mary Helen and Gary Bartley were her grandchildren. Not sure how I missed that one! Blessings to you all.
