What a wonderful lady! I remember coming home from school & my mom, Hattie & Dorothy & Marie , setting in our yard breaking up beans, laughing ! If you never laughed, you did around Marie. Her laugh was contagious . And she was a kind, beautiful person . Sorry for your loss but everyone is blessed who knew her . Love & prayers, Landa

That Angle up there with the biggest wings, the longest arms with a quiver filled with flowers, gifts, toys, and sweets and she's there with her husband Angle, Bud, reviewing preparations for church services and overseeing all her children's and grandchildren's appointments making sure that all goes well at the doctor's office, soccer games, baseball games, community affairs and looking after all those friends who always look up to her for advice and love. And she will be flying over those who are finishing the last stitch of the needle on the embroidery band, the crochet piece, and that there's the final tack to the final piece of a beautiful quilt and with somebody's name on it, or it wouldn't be finished. She'll be looking over the shoulders of those who prepare the holiday meals that just the right seasoning is included and everybody shares with a plate, no matter the time of day they arrive. She'll be there flying over all people, family, friends, and all those who didn't have the opportunity to share her smiling face; she and Bud will have those arms and wings wrapped around all those who enter and leave the hospital.
If you think she is not there, look up, look around; you will see her.
