    Mary Helen's smile would light up the room, the building, the world. She was such a blessing and I am so very thankful that I got to see her a couple of weeks ago. I pray that her family is blessed with their many wonderful memories of her as they celebrate her life and her legacy. God Bless and keep her and her family.

    Dear Talley Family:
    Please accept my deepest condolences in your time of need. Although I never made Mary's acquaintance, I've had the utmost pleasure of working with Steve and as such, give my condolences.
