Mary has a special place at Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona.
When I go to Mary’s Place,
I remember her sweet face,
And the way she used to pray
At the start of every day:
“Bless, O Lord, both great and small;
Shower good things on them all.
Let not evil have its way
This or any other day.”
Thus she prayed for you and me,
Prayed nonstop, prayed fervently.
I can almost see her face
When I come to Mary’s Place.
