I was so sad to hear of Mary's passing.  I have so many fond memories of Mary or "Taggy" as her close friends called her.  I lived in Zama, but would take the post bus to the Depot every weekend to go to the little Teen Club.  There weren't as many kids at that teen club, but we were really close like a family. There was Taggy, Shelley, Carla Williams, Ricky Sanchez, and Sharon Hensley.  Mrs Taglioboshi use to invite me over for lasagna ummmmm.  My mom was Japanese and I had never had lagagna before. What a treat! Taggy was the star soprano of the Zama glee club. When she sang, "Wow, what a voice!"  It was beautiful!!

Taggy and I were part of a group of girls, who used to take the train to Tokyo to see first run movies. The movie I most remember seeing was West Side Story, because afterwards we all sat down and cried. Of course we argued about who was cuter George Chakiris or Richard Beymer.  I have found almost everyone in this group, just recently Carmen Rivera and Shelley Halker.  There was Karen and Shirley Switzer, Frieda Takamura, Barbara Levine, Wesley Kunioka, Dana Harris,  Maria Genco and Marguerite White. I fondly remember Taggy being older and taller than me and how she always looked out for me.  I'm kind of short, so Taggy always protected me on the crowded Japanese trains. She also had a great sense of humor and she made me laugh

Last spring I was in Washington D.C. where I got together with Carmen and Shelley. We vowed to get the whole train group to the Seattle reunion. Carmen was going to contact Frieda, I was going to contact Taggy and we were all going to look for Dana Harris.  I was so sad to come home and find I was too late to talk to Taggy. Just shows you that when you get to be our age you can't  keep saying, "One of these days I'll......"

My sincerest condolensces to her family. She is gone, but will always be warmly remembered in my heart.
