"I'd like to extend my condolences to Mary's family. I knew her when I was a student at Northwestern University. She was always kind, helpful and supportive Her demeanor helped to set an appropriate tone and conveyed to all of the students a sense of what it meant to be a professional. I'm grateful to have known her and appreciative of what she meant to the entire Northwestern Dental School Community. Eternal blessings Mary."
