My heart goes out to the entire family during this time of loss, but especially to my friend Kari and her son Tommy. Kari loved her sister and stood by her through her illness. Mary and her nephew Tommy had a special bond, and I know Tommy will miss her very much.

I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now, but I want you to know that I am just a phone call away. My heartfelt condolences.

I doubt Mary ever mentioned me, but I'm only about half mile away, and drive by her house everyday on my way to work, at The Imaging center. I recognized her address when she came in for a scan about 2 yrs ago, we got acquainted, and I always mentioned what beautiful flowers she had at her house. I always looked forward to seeing her when I saw her on my schedule. I will miss her. You are a lucky family to have had her.

My love and deepest sympathy to the entire Loomis family, especially to Kari and Tommy, for the loss of their kind, courageous, loving Mary. I will miss her at every Tunes on the Track (where we shared nights of laughter and music) and will always admire her dedication to stopping violence through her activism at Moms Demand Action. I, along with many others, will always admire Mary and will miss her loving presence in our lives.
