The Rasmussen family extends their deeply heartfelt condolences to all of Mary's extended family, all of whom she spoke of so lovingly, with deep devotion and great pride. We will be forever grateful to Mary for the devotion, integrity, intelligence, honesty, playful good humor and loving kindness with which she cared for Joann and Arthur Rasmussen over the past 20 years. I will miss her dear laugh, her deep and inspiring wisdom, her generosity of spirit, her reverence for nature and all life, and her large and mighty heart. She remains forever an awe-inspiring example of how to live life courageously, with faith and gratitude no matter the hardships and life circumstances. Mary will be sorely missed indeed.
My best friend! We've shared so much that I can't begin to mention. Words escape me-- I just know my life will never be the same! I have lost part of me! She is in Heaven -face to face now with the God she prayed to everyday! Thank God for me for bringing us together. I loved you Mary! You'll remain in my heart until we meet again!
