    Mary Ann
    I know that words are inadequate at a time like this but wanted you to know Mary Ann how sorry I am for your loss. As sad as it is, I know you have many cherished memories of him to hold in your heart. I noticed a message from Jack Crooker, my father worked most of his life at Shell. I actually never made the connection until reading Mals' obit. When I visited my mom at MGM I would always see you. You were such an amazing and devoted wife. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
