Please accept our most sincere sympathy on the passing of Mary. Keith worked with Mary at Indiana Steel and Wire and appreciated her attention to detail in her job plus her general interest in people. She was always so friendly when I dropped by the office and/or saw her in the community. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. We are unable to attend the services and/or calling but did want to send our condolences. Sincerely, Joyce and Keith Carmichael
