Dear Nona, Bruce, Seth, & Tiffany....our hearts are breaking for each of you. Mary was a very special spirit, and I'm sure our Heavenly Father had a unique task that needed Mary's special touch! She was a joy to have in our YSA Ward, she took such pride in her RS calling and always had a plan for a great activity. Our prayer for each of you is to somehow find peace in your heart just knowing that she was Soooo good, she went straight to the celestial kingdom! I can't wait to see what kind of a party she has planned when we all get to see her again. Sending our heartfelt sympathy....and of course our love.💕

So sorry to hear about Mary. I truly enjoyed working with her in IWA many years ago at the Institue and it seems like yesterday I saw her and we hugged and said hello. She is one of those special spirits and God needed her to help Him on the other side. She will be watching over the family and never far away. You now have your own guardian angel.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I just can't believe it. I try to keep up on the happenings in Price and am so grateful for Facebook to keep me informed. Mary was a beautiful young woman and I loved reading and seeing her posts online. I'm absolutely certain she was called home for a very important reason. My heart goes out to you all. Much love. ❤

I will never forget how Mary changed the quality of life for one little guy that she worked with as a 1:1 paraprofessional at Castle Heights. Miss Mary touched my heart with her kindness and patience as she worked with this child. She will be missed.

Dear Burgess family. I'm so sorry to hear about Mary. We loved her so much. The kids and I will miss her everyday. She was so helpful and loving to the kids.

Dear Nona and Bruce,
So sorry for this loss - too soon. I remember meeting Mary Elizabeth several times when you've been in LaBarge and I was always impressed with how intelligent and happy she was. The gospel brings comfort in knowing she's in a far, far better place now. It's my feeling that Mary will continue her good works there without missing a hitch.
Love, Carol Jones

Please know how much I love each of you and of the passing of your daughter Mary. Even though I can't be there I will pray for you. I would be there if I was able to do so. Please send me a copy of the program when you can. At least your daughter is in a better place. May you always remember the good times.

Bruce, Nona, and Seth,
I was so terribly sorry to hear of Mary's passing. The past couple weeks, my kids have heard a lot of stories about Mary, her joy, humor, and kindness. She was truly a blessing in so many lives, including mine. I am honored to call her friend.
I met her when I was 18 and first living away from home for the first time. I went through some really hard things while at CEU, and without fail, Mary was always there to lend a listening ear and a warm hug. She was the type of person who you could always count on, and always carried so much joy and laughter that you couldn't help but feel joy and laugh too.
I will always be grateful that I had the opportunity to have her in my life for the last 13 years. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this painful time. We will be missed by so many. May you be filled with the peace and comfort our Savior brings, and know that your daughter was so loved by all that knew her.

It is with incredible sadness that we type these words. Your family were among the first people to welcome us to Carbon County and really made us feel at home. We hope you can find comfort during this time of great loss.

Dear Bruce and Nona,
I was shocked and saddened to hear about your daughter's passing. I take it she was suffering from cancer. Cancer has become a vile swear word to me. Too many of my friends and family members have died from cancer. I pray you find peace and comfort from Our Father in Heaven and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Coralie ( yes, love. I have fond memories from our past. Nona , you were an awesome presenter in our workshops. I did enjoy getting acquainted when I got brave enough to talk to you. Bruce, I still consider you a friend in-spite of our history. We had fun. )

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

My condolences.
