Celebrating the life of Mary Hamlin Tweed
Thank you for signing Mary Hamlin Tweed's Guestbook
So sorry to hear of the passing of Mary. She was such a sweet, soft spoken and beautiful lady. A real and true lady in every sense of the word. Mary was also my first cousin. She and Major were a constant in my childhood and I will never forget them. She is with family and friends who have gone on to heaven over the years. What a wonderful reunion they are having. I will pray that the Lord will bring comfort at this time. (By the way, my mother was Roy Hamlin's youngest sister, Hazel Hamlin West)
