Aunt Marie is the best aunt that anyone could ever ask for. She was a very meek and selfless person. She always remained strong and was there to offer strength and encouragement. She cherished her family and faith as she enjoyed being with others and sharing good conversation. She lived a blessed life with little or no regrets. I will surely miss her as Aunt Marie was one of the people that I can say that I truly looked up to. May she rest in peace and may she receive the reward of her good deeds.
