Marie had eyes that twinkled, a never ending smile and a contagious laugh. Her soft voice and gentle spirit exemplified God's love. I treasure all the memories from yester years.
Julia, Helen, Jerry and Lorraine, God certainly blessed you with a wonderful mother.
What a comfort to know that she was welcomed home by our Lord and Savior. May God's love sustain you as you all start a new chapter in your book of life here on earth. Much love.

I wish we could be there with family today to celebrate Aunt Marie's life. I know she is at peace in her heavenly home, and I send prayers up for Julia, Helen, Jerry and Lorraine for God's comfort and peace as we all know it's so hard to lose a parent.
