It's been 15 years tomorrow and I can't tell you how much I miss you! It never gets easier for me or any of us. We survive and get through the days although some are easier than others. I had a dream about you a couple of nights ago and we were laughing so hard our stomachs hurt just like we used to. You understood me more than anyone does or ever has and that's what I miss about you the most. Please know I love you and cant wait until we meet again! See you on the other side and continue to fly high among the angels. Your friend and sister forever,

Tami <3

Marnie,
It has been over a month and I still cannot believe you are gone. I can’t thank you enough for taking what could have been a difficult situation & not only making it easy, but very comfortable as well. I am honored to have had you as my friend for the 16 plus years. I will miss waiting for you in Spanish Fork & having you show up consistently 15 minutes late & trying to guess what excuse you would have for it. You always had a different one, albeit a lame one, I’ll give you an A for creativity. I still get choked up driving past that exit every time! I love & miss you & want you to know, I promise to take care of our daughter & do what I feel in my heart, will be best for her future. She is in great hands!
The world has truly lost a free spirited person. We’ll see you on the other side, until then, please give us the strength to move forward and accept what we cannot control.
Peace, & “word to your mother”
Love, Holmes
To Marnies family, Ken, Kim, Holly & Maryann
Thank you all so much. I am so sorry to you all for your loss but I want to thank you for your devotion to Kynslie. While it is hard for me to leave her in Manti, I know that’s where she wants, & needs to be.
Kynslie, I love you with all my heart & soul and I will do everything in my power to see that you go on to great things & make your mamma proud & get you through this. I miss your mom as well & I need you to help me to.
There are tough times ahead but there are even more joyous times to come. “The memories & dreams you shared, will always live on”
Stacy, hang in there. You know I love ya & I will be here for you. I am just a phone call away.
I also want to thank the people of Manti. What a great city & a great group of human beings I have met, mostly over the last month. I will see some of you around I am sure.
Sincerely,
Chris Coffin

To Marnie's family and friends; my heartfelt sympathies. Marnie was one of my daughter's, Gina Marie Leavitt (Higham)high school friends. I loved the way Marnie's smile just lit up the whole room whenever she walked into our house. Thank you Marnie for giving so much love and a great friendship to my daughter Gina, and thank you family for sharing such a treasure with us.

Wisdom

Maybe God wanted us to meet the wrong people before
meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the
right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

Maybe the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit
on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then
walk away feeling like it was the best conversation
you've ever had.

There are moments in life when you miss someone so
much that you just want to pick them from your dreams
and hug them for real. Dream what you want to dream;
go where you want to go; be what you want to be,
because you have only one life and one chance to do
all the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to
keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends
with a tear.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so that when
you die, you are the one smiling and everyone around
you is crying.


We miss you Marn.

Tony, Leslie, Lynnzie and Alex

Marnie will be dearly missed! She was always so thoughtful of others and put their needs before her own. She was such a beautiful person inside and out and was always the life the party. "Fassia" thanks for the memories. We'll miss you!!

Dear Ken, Kim, Mary Ann and Deanna,

I feel as though I missed out on knowing someone very special, since I had never met Marnie.

Sophie told me that Marnie was a lot of fun and nice. That is a nice compliment to all of you.

So many of us wish we could take away your pain, and right this terrible wrong, but we are powerless to do so.

Please know that Marnie is resting peacefully in the Arms of Our Lord, Jesus. And that is the most wonderful thing we parents could ever hope for -- for our children.

Sincerely,

Karole

Marnie was my favorite second cousin. We were good friends as children and teenagers. Although I had not seen her for several years,I still sometimes wondered how she was doing and was shocked and sadened to learn of her death.

My family and I would like to express our condolances to her family and children. We regret being unable to attend her funeral, but you are all in our thoughts.

Goodbye Marnie, you will be missed.
Your Cousin,
Danny

Seems like yesterday we grew up together. Though we hadn't had much contact over the years, I will always have the great memories, and for that I am forever in debt to Marnie.

I wish Marnie's family well, they will be in my thoughts.

Tonight as I tucked my children in, and listened to their prayers, this is what my Jaycie age 6 prayed. "Please be with Marnie in Heaven Jesus and be with her family, let them know that she is with you, and help them to learn about you Jesus so that they too can go to Heaven." I just wanted to let you know that even the little ones have you all in prayer.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I worked with Marnie at Sanpete Valley Hospital for some years ago. I always appreciated her smile, sense of humor and friendship. She was incredibly nice to everyone she met, even those who, at times, are hard to be nice to. She accepted people for who and what they were. I know that Marnie will be loved and missed by all that knew her.
Later Marn . .

Although I haven't seen Marnie since just out of high school, I have thought about her over the years and oh, how I wish now that I had contacted her. I was greatly saddened to hear of her passing. I only hope that her children will remember her beautiful eyes, smile and caring ways. But especially her great sense of humor. Marnie lit up every room she entered. I'm sorry I let so many years pass without contacting you Marn, I hope that if there is a heaven, you are happy there too. To her family, may your memories bring you comfort in this time of sorrow.

To everyone that was fortunate enough to have known and loved Marnie, remember, she walks with god.

"Out In The Fields"
The little cares that fretted me,
I lost them yesterday
Among the fields above the sea,
Among the lowing of the herds,
The rustling of the trees,
Among the singing of the birds,
The humming of the bees.
The foolish fears of what might come
I cast them all away
Among the clover scented grass, Among the new mown hay,
Among the husking of the corn
Where drowsy poppies nod,
Where ill thoughts die and good are born,
Out in the fields with God.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Marnie I will always treasure the memories, All my love

Marnie, From the time I first met you, 12 years ago, when we lived in the same apartments in Murray, you always brought comfort my way. Every time I seen you I just felt a peace, just something that you carried around with you. Thank you for the smiles sent my way, for the hollered "hello" when you delivered our mail. My little girls have missed seeing you go by, they always thought it was the neatest that we had a girl to deliver our mail. Marnie, your smile will be planted forever in my heart, you will be missed. I know that you are now with our Lord in heaven and I am so thankful to Jesus for that. I will continue to forever pray for your family and children that Jesus work in their hearts to bring them closer to Him.

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means The Lord be with you all.
