I was shocked and saddened by the news of Mary Lee's passing. I have considered her as a friend these past 13 years. She always listened and empathized as she worked and was very uplifting to visit with. She will be greatly missed. I am very sorry for your family to be parted from her so soon. My prayers are with you.

I was shocked and saddened to read of the death of Mary Lee. I have been a client of hers for years and have been praying for her and putting your family on the prayer roll in the temple since I learned from Kim of her cancer. But I had no idea she would pass on so quickly. Please let me know that you are in my prayers and I send my love.
Mary Lee was always interested in what I

I just heard about the death of Mary Lee. My sincerest condolences to the entire family. I have been a client of hers for over 10 years and she has become one of my greatest friends. I often referred to her as my therapist because she helped me through some really hard times, especially the last three years. I'm not sure I would have made it through without her. I am so grateful that she was a part of my

Dearest Bird Family: Fond are the memories of seeing Mary at the family dinners and functions that me and my family were invited to. She is a sweetie and I enjoyed being around her and the family. May the Lord bless her sweet family and may the comforter be very close at this time. Love you, Linda Hughes

Kim... When we talked at my last Friday, I knew how worried you were, but this did not cross my mind at all. Please accept my sincere sympathy. I really did not know your mother well, but she always seem to be very kind and very much a lady. The last time she worked on me (probably when you had your last baby), she indicated that she did not have another appointment for an hour or so so I took

I reconnected with Mary Lee when I became her client and so enjoyed our visits while she worked. She was a lovely woman. I'm sorry she's gone.

Dear Bird, I was so sad to hear from your mother and wife's passing. Mary was such an incredible woman and I consider it a priviledge to have known her. She was a beautiful woman and daughter of our Heavenly Father - on the inside and the outside. She was an example of righteous and love. I know she will be greatly missed, but her teachings and memory will remain forever. Much love and prayers...Jeri Lynn.

I have many happy memories as a childhood friend and school mate of Mary Lee Nelson Bird. We were also in the same ward in Spanish Fork. She was fun to be around, and I am proud to call her my friend. I express my sympathy to all of her family.

I have given much thought as to what I can say to you Bud that would give any type of comfort. The one thing I want you to know is that Mary knew you loved her. The reason I know that is because you talked about her alot. It was appraent to me that you were a great husband and that you took great care of Mary. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I am sorry to hear of Mary Lee's passing. I was a former client of her's, and it was always such a positive experience to sit in her electrolysis chair and be able to chat with her for a few minutes during my appointments. Mary Lee was always upbeat made her clients feel that she really cared about them as people, not just as her clients. My thoughts and prayers, and thanks for sharing a wonderful woman with the rest of us, go out to your family.

I will always cherish my memories with Marylee. She was like a mother to me as I was a client of hers for nearly 20 years. She has supported me in every step of my life, including my marriage and the birth of my children. She was always there to listen to me and never judge me. I will miss her.

We will miss you at the wig shop Mary Lee. I will always remember what a great example of hard work and devotion you were to your family, and your selfless love you showed everyone around you. You had the most cheerful, contagious laugh and I enjoyed our many talks in between clients. I know your clients will miss you as will Diane and I. I want to offer my condolences to the family, and especially you KIM! I love you and your mom. Take care now, and may peace be with you as it is with your mom now.
