I had the pleasure of meeting this remarkable lady on my time visiting the the US. A true character, we shared laughs and old stories about Ireland and that smile will last a lifetime. An incredible Grandmother to my dear friends and I know she will be sadly missed.

I have such wonderful memories of visits with Marie and the family both in Saint John and Mass. Marie was such a fun-loving happy woman and we so wished that we could have had one last visit with her. The last of that generation that we were priviliged to have been a part of despite our difference in age. I am sure that Dad and all the Duffley family is having a grand reunion in Heaven with Marie, Esther, Fred and all the rest, probably having a drink of apricot brandy together! Love you all, our prayers are with you!

Aunt Marie came to watch her niece Caileigh at a local Irish Step Dance competition. We enjoyed spending the afternoon together, a fantastic memory.

ReRe, living with you the past year and a half was amazing. I learned so much from you about our family's history and I had so many great laughs with you. It will be hard to come home from work every night and not see your smiling face sitting in that blue chair. I love you very much, Re. -Mary E
