Mary and Odessa were our neighbors since 1962 , they were great ladies and the hardest working women I have ever seen, from collecting honey from beehives to watching endless Texas Rangers baseball games, there was never a dull moment, Mary was one of a kind and will be in the Stevenson hearts for ever, God Bless her soul
