Condolence From: Ari Tillman
Condolence: Dear Mrs. D,
I am so truly sorry to hear of your passing. I was a student of yours at JFK H.S. in The Bronx in the early to mid 90's. You were absolutely such a caring, kind and sympathetic teacher and role model to many of the students and athletes that had the privilege of knowing you!! You were always working hard for all of your "kids" to be successful by helping us in any way possible, and for that, I for one, am so grateful and very appreciative!! May God keep you in the Kingdom of Heaven with Him forever and ever and my sincerest, deepest and heartfelt condolences to your family!!
Eternally Grateful For Having Known You,
Ari Tillman

Condolence: I was so sorry to hear the news about Mary. She was always so full of life, so giving, and always so great to me, forever offering to "watch Murphy". Her contagious smile and great laugh will certainly be missed. My sympathies to her family.
