Letters to the Editor: Dear Family and Friends of Mary Minor

As many of you know, Mary has moved to the Grand Traverse Pavilions. The progression of her Alzheimer's made this necessary.

We want to say thank you to all the Angels in Mary's life who were so loving, kind, and supportive. Your efforts to do what you could to allow her to live on the Island as long as possible were wonderful and greatly appreciated. We are so grateful to God for all of you.

To send her cards or letters, the address is 1000 Pavilions Circle, Unit #618, Maple Pavilion, Traverse City MI 49684. You can email her at– indicate her name and unit number and the staff will bring it and read it for her. Unfortunately she's at the stage where she can't read or write.
Visitors are welcome. And gifts, although live plants or flowers, or anything glass, are not allowed–and Mary can only eat what's on her special diet. What she needs most are your thoughts and prayers.

Our journey with Mary is far from over. We need to look to each other for love and support–that's what family and friends do best.

–Joe & Lois LaFreniere
