Mary Riley was a dedicated supporter of her husband's mission and did her part to serve those who served the nation by caring for and supporting the spouse's and families of those service members under Col. Riley's many commands. We will miss her greatly but rejoice in her salvation through Jesus Christ and her arrival into the arms of God the Father.

Harry and Kids,
I am saddened by the news about Mary. I was proud to have met you both in March of 2007 down in Pensacola, Fl. , back when we were "Eagles".

She is not gone who is fondly remembered. She is your "point man" for that better place.

Praise God for this beautiful mother  who gave it all, She now is in Masters Arms hearing them say: Well done, good

and faithful servant over a few things. I will make you a ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your  Lord.

Mt 25: 21     Your Brother in Christ,  Love Joe

Just read of the Passing of Mary and her returning to the arms of her Heavenly Father. Her family is in my prayers.
I am convinced that as believers in Yeshua our life does not end with a "period" but with a "comma" as Mary awaits her ressurection, the putting on of her glorified body and her eternal marriage to her bridegroom, I rejoice that she is one of the chosen to rule and reign with Christ for eternity. Now she rests in the Shalom of God, I pray the family and all who knew her also experience "Shalom".
Your Brother and co-laborer in the Gospel:

Col. Riley, I am so very sorry for your loss. I might be able to make it to the Barrancas Cemetery. I live in Gulf Breeze with my husband. We are both Army veterans. God bless you and your family as you make it through together through love!     Wendy & Terry Bishop @
