Marie Gallman was a dear friend and neighbor to my mother on Macready whose name just happened to be Marie Waitzman. I remember Marie and her husband too growing up. Walter and Eddie were friends with my brother Tom Waitzman who now lives in Florida but he loved the family dearly. Walter and Eddie and Linda I am so sorry to hear of her passing but she can now visit with my Mom once again. There in heaven no more sorrow, tears, troubles, or sickness so enjoy your new body and presence in the house of the Lord. Love from Tom and I-Carolyn
Hope to see you on Monday

I will miss Marie and was very privileged to have the opportunity to bring her Communion each week. She always welcomed me with her beautiful smile and would wave to me as I drove away.
I would write messages to her using the white board when her hearing loss worsened. The message I would leave for her to see was "Jesus and Mary love you and so do I. And I added I will be back." I know she is very happy in heaven with all of her family and friends.
Her son, Walter, took amazing care of her and brought her to his home after her home was destroyed by the tornado.
Enjoy heaven, Marie, and pray for us!
