I had the honor of guiding Mary's AUIP group in New Zealand and am devastated that such a vibrant soul has been taken so early. My condolences and prayers to all. Arohanui and Kia kaha. Chris Parsons. Chris Parsons, April 21, 2015 I'm so sorry for your loss and want to offer my condolences. Mary's message to me earlier this year about her experience studying abroad brightened my day and reminded me of why I work with university students to help them achieve their dreams. She will be missed by her UNT family. Amy Shenberger, April 9, 2015 Mary was a special member of our group trip to New Zealand and Australia.
