"So many meaningful and wonderful memories growing up with your family. From playing football in the winter to all those wonderful days as boys at Prentice Little League. My Prayers are with your family at this time. You blessed so many of us, My Mother Edna Baker who used to do your hair loved you and your family so much. My Prayers."
"To Mrs. Ballard's Family,
From 1994-2000, I was principal and Mrs. Ballard was librarian at Francis Bellamy School #99.
Her loving personality was a true demonstration of her Christian faith and beliefs. It was a joy just to be in her presence. She would do an outstanding job at school and then go home to care for her ailing husband, Duard. Without a doubt, Heaven is her home and the angels are rejoicing.
Dr. Gene Mosley
"Mary will be much missed by the members of two organizations that she belonged to for many years. We all admired her and knew her to be a very kind and lovely lady in all circumstances. Our prayers are with her family at this time. She has left a lasting impression in our memories. From: Members of Silvertones and The Fatima Ladies Auxiliary."
