Mary will always have a special place in my heart. She welcomed me with open arms into her home and family many, many times over the years ... making holidays especially joyful when I wasn't able to celebrate with my own family. There was always room for one more at the Besse family table. May her memory be a blessing to all whose lives she touched.

Our halloween and block party events as well as Christmas caroling will never be forgotten and were the envy of the town. Kids arrived by the hundreds, dropped off by unknown parents to participate in the Portola Drive festivities over the 32 years we were delighted to be friends of the Besse family. Mary will always be in our Portola memories and we will
remember her as a kind and thoughtful friend and neighbor.
