First my sincere condolences to you, Eric and the rest of Mary's family. I first met Mary K. Wilson when we were both employed by First Federal S&L on 5th Street in Chester, PA. I can describe Mary (“K” as I called her later in life) as BEAUTIFUL both outside and in. She was a combination of two animals so to speak…a tiger and a lamb. At times you never knew who would emerge, but it sure was fun finding out!!! I remember her outgoing personality, her great laugh and THAT smile when she stood there and looked at you and you didn’t know whether she was thinking “that’s a load of horse S_ _T”! Or “that’s the most brilliant thing I’ve ever heard”!!! She was a very hard and honest worker and just as delightful to be around after work. I have many good memories of going out on the town with “K”...laughing, dancing and just having a great time. I shall miss her immensely. Rest In Peace My Dear “K”...Sandra (Sandi) M. Griswold
Dear Eric, I feel lucky that you and Mary were able to attend my daughter’s wedding. It was a blessing for all of our family members to be together. After getting to know one another a bit more at the wedding, Mary and I developed a nice Facebook messaging friendship. It was endearing to me how she loved videos of my dog Benjamin. Mary often sent dog videos to me so we could share a laugh. I am sorry that illness took Mary way too soon. May she rest peacefully and pain free in Heaven in the arms of the Lord.
My prayers are with you. While my association with Mary Kay was not that close, I always remember her kindness to everyone she met. As a Bortondale neighbor, with mothers who were good friends, I had the privilege to visit her and her family on multiple occasions. She was a great ambassador for little ole Bortondale!
Eric, I am so sad that Mary Kay has died. Her short, yet intense illness was a terrible ordeal for her and for you as well. The hospital situation in Delaware County certainly made her care quite stressful for you both. I wish I could have been closer in distance to help you and to be certain that she felt loved by more people than just her small circle with you. She and I have been through crazy times from 1957 to last week. School, friends, college, weddings, babies, holidays and so much more. From the early days, Brownies and Girl Scouts, Media Fawns and Bortondale Firehouse parades and other shenanigans. Before that, Barbie dolls, riding bikes, too many sleepovers to count, Ridley Creek, Fox Road, early morning calls every Christmas morning. Such was life, till it wasn't, and then we found each other again....on and on. But, through it all, I have never seen Mary Kay (sorry, I can't call her Mary) as happy and enjoying life then after you and she married. From an on again/off again best friend status, she remained, until Friday, the longest friendship I've ever had. You, Eric, her love and joy. Thank you for loving her and keeping her safe and happy. You will remain in my prayers and you have number if you need to talk, share, grieve, cry or just hear someone else breathing. I will miss Mary Kay, I already do. I am so glad she felt hugged by a simple fuzzy blanket in the hospital. I have my memories, which I will always cherish. Love, Rita
