Some of my best memories are those shared with Marie. We had such good times - so many years ago. She was a loyal and loving friend who will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. I wish I could be there tomorrow and Tuesday to help celebrate her life.

I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew Marie for two years in Junior High School. She was so very nice. pleasant and very smart. She was skipped a grade. She left lasting pleasant memories. I wish that we had kept in touch.

My deepest condolences to the family. It's never easy losing a loved one. Please find comfort in God's promise found at John 6:40 which says that soon we will see all our loved ones again. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
