The following is a sentiment that we think Mary would like shared with her loved one’s:
To: My Dearest Family & Friends,
There are some things I’d like to say but first of all I’d like to let you know that I am writing this from Heaven to let you know that I have arrived ok. Here, there are no more tears of sadness; there is just eternal love. That day I had to leave you when my life on Earth was through, then God hugged me and said to me "Welcome home, Mary"
