I will miss Grandma Marie's smile and laugh and her long phone conversations. She lived a full life and was able to share her gift of music with many. She loved to play piano and we are fortunate that she took the time to record her piano playing which we will cherish forever. Grandma Marie is at peace now with her sons Dan and Del which I am sure they are sitting around laughing and holding each other once again. Love to you Marie!
