I am so saddened to learn of Mary’s passing. She was my friend and riding partner back in the day at Twisted Oak Farm. I will miss her but am thankful for the memories.

I’m in disbelief. I’ve had many, many clients over the years but Mary was so nice and friendly to me on every occasion. So friendly. So nice. So personable. I will truly miss her.
