Dear Bill and family, I am so sorry for your loss. "Godmother Wilson", as I always called her, was someone I always admired. I have known her my whole life and although did not see her as often as we both would have liked, she was the kindest, sweetest, funny lady I was proud to have as my Godmother. My best to all of you. With love, Mary Mayo

To Mary's family we send our deepest sympathy. Mary was a wonderful lady. She was full of spirit, love and kindness. We loved the time we have shared with her over the years especially sharing our horses with her. We would sit and talk for hours. Everyone at Sardis Church has missed her at the Fish Fry. God speed Mary Wilson we truly miss you. Tommy & Jo Ann Powell

Dear Bill,
So sorry to read of your mom's passing. What a great woman she was. Best cook ever and could carry a conversation! Plus, had total control of Big Jim. I enjoyed many weekends at the farm with your brother, water skiing and helping your dad around the place. She was a very special lady and will be sorely missed.
