Thinking of everyone at this sad time, so glad I stopped in on Monday and had a short visit with Marie and some of the family. Will miss seeing her on my visits to the Manor but know she will be happy that she has been reunited with other family members.

To all of Marie's family: I am sorry that Marie has gone from you. I am sure that she left many memories that will live in your hearts forever.

I remember Marie from years ago. She and I both were in the wedding party when Carl and Roberta got married in the Hilly Grove United Church. She was so absolutely beautiful that day; this young girl was in awe. I met her over the years and she remained beautiful in features and in spirit. May you find comfort in remembering her gifts and her love.
