Mary Ann's mother, Wanda Kuffel, and my grandmother (Bianca Borrello) were roommates for many years at Sun Valley Manor in Bridgeport MI. I saw Mary Ann there every day and many times twice a day. Her care and her devotion to her mother were unsurpassed, and she provided to all of us an amazing living testimony of love. I'm sure it must have been hard on Tom and her son, so the sacrifices they made for that level of care to happen are also commendable. So glad to have known Mary Ann, Tom, and Wanda.
