I am pretty sure Marie is chasing Daisy out of the dining room as she looks for crumbs right now. She was a wonderful person and I am glad I got to know her during the time Daddy was at Morning Point. I know the family will rejoice in a life well lived. Love you, Marie!

Mike, I am sorry for the loss of your mother. I got to know her when my parents were living at Morning Point, Mom and Dad enjoyed talking to her when your Mom delivered the new paper to them. My Mon died on November 22, and my Dad died on January 3. I know what you are going through.
