Marie, being my double first cousin, has been in my memory as
far back as I breathed life on this earth. She began piano lessons
in the second grade and would play the piano for me to listen to
my favorite songs and I would pretend to be a professional singer;
she would play the piano and never complain as I sang "off key"
and bellowed out those songs. She even purchased music of some
of my favorites to play and entertain for me. Marie had no imagination
for "play", but she was so patient with her little cousin and her "not so
great" ability to sing, but loved to try. Thank You Marie, for all our talks
and play dates in your living room as you entertained me, playing the piano.
I just wish we could do that one more time; see you in Heaven, soon. Give
all our wonderful relatives a bit hug from me.

So sad to lose my cousin, Marie. I wish I had a chance to see her more often after I moved to Orlando 38 years ago. Rest In Peace Cuz! ❤

Sandra, you have never met me but your mother and I attended college together at Appalachian, enjoyed many meals together, and had lots of long talks. I am sorry that we did not stay in touch. My sympathy and love to you and all the family. I am sure she will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Marie passing. It has really touched me, we didn't get to see each other at all but we really talked by phone to keep in touch. I will really miss the phone calls. You have my deepest sympathy.
