I extend to all of you my most sincere sympathy upon the passing of Mayry. I will never forget her smiling face and friendliness. Mayry made this world a little better for all who knew her. May your memories be a source of comfort.

I remember many good times with Mayry and Ray, and the rest of the family. As much as the sadness of her loss is felt, I know that there is joy in knowing she is in a better place and is not burdened by her earthly body any more. My mother always speaks of visiting Mayry, and was very concerned with how she was doing -- especially recently. In seeing Mayry regularly at Fountain Park, I know she will be happier now. I'm also feel the caring and love shown by Ned Alan, Delores, and others was greatly appreciated. My thoughts and prayers are with Mayry and family. God bless and give you peace. Love, Maury

Ned and Cindy Garver, Bri and Chase

To Mayry's family ... My condolences and thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. I came to know Mayry when I met Ray and he'd make wooden ornaments for my family reunion. I did not know he and Mayry were related to the Potts-Cornell family or that my brother Alan and Ray shared a deep interest in music together. Mayry always was so upbeat and courteous, so friendly and warm to visit with. I will keep your families in my prayers. Sharon Brinkman

I will always have fond memories of spending time with Mayry & Ray in their home in Ft. Wayne. Being in their presence had a calming effect. They are both missed.
