sympathy shown us in the recent passing away of Mac’s brother,

I have sung in the Choir for 65 years – at this point in time I am
retiring. Through those many years singing in Grace’s Choir, from
a teenager to present, I have been blessed beyond words. With this
talent that God has richly blessed me with, my prayer is that He
has used me to reach out to others, “With the Voice of Singing”.
~Mary Mc Alary
