A candle was lit in memory of Mary Elizabeth Cochran

We are so sorry to learn of Mary's passing. She was always a bright spot in our day at the pharmacy. Darlene and Erica (RiteAid) Aug 16 2021 12:39 PM

My family and I met Mary when she so kindly and lovingly assisted my Aunt when she needed it the most. She gave her shelter and support while we worked on some family issues. She was so kind to us all and a pleasure to be around. We stayed in contact and enjoyed speaking with her periodically. We will miss Mary and hope that her family finds healing and comfort. We all hope to one day be together in his glory and to share good times again.
With our Love,
The Cummings Family,
Josh, Jessica, & Sadie
