To the Henry (Taye) and the entire Wilson family, we were saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs. Mary, but be comforted in knowing God is too wise to make a mistake. Remember to look to the hill in whence all you help cometh. Weeping may endure for a night but, Joy will come!!! Love, The Glover's Albany, GA (Albert, Mercy, Adaryll, Kim and Miyah).
