Aloha! Mary and I had connected via Facebook a few years ago as many of us have with our other GGHS alumni, friends, and family. I didn't actually know Mary all that much in school but once we connected on FB, we talked a lot about landscape gardening, her being the profoundly dedicated garden designer and me with my own landscape architecture background. She was a very enthusiastic horticulturist and we enjoyed talking of the many things related to design, plant taxonomy, permaculture, and such. She was a character, ever bubbly and optimistic. When Emily let me (and many others as well) know that Mary had fallen ill, it came as a very big surprise. Heartbreaking indeed! Thank You, Emily, for keeping all of us informed about Mary's battles and to your dedication to her well being in her final days. I'm glad you were able to correct the details about her being a student at GGHS and those related to her life.
