    I have such fond memories of Ms. Mary. Many times I was at her house when Rickey and I were dating back in high school. To the family my deepest condolences. To Rickey, I know how much you loved her and she loved you. You’re in my heart today.

    So very sorry to hear about Pinkie. Loved talking with her and Wilma when we lived in Nashville. She was a sweetheart. My sympathy to the family.

    Mary’s son Rodney has been a friend, employer, mentor and fellow professional in the cowboy boot business since the early 90’s. While I did not know Mary well, I do know her son Rodney. He works with great skill, takes care of his employees, cares about his family, and was dedicated to his mother. I do believe that great mothers produce great sons. That was the case with Mary and Rodney.
