    Mary was the first girl I got in touch with as an exchange student 00/01.My first impression was wow what a good looking girl.
    Through my whole exchange student year she gave me a ride to school an back home. We had so much fun and I learned a lot of crazy stuff from her.
    The last time we saw each other was at the airport in Pittsburgh before I left the USA to go back home to Germany with my High school.
    Rest in Peace Mary. I will miss you
