Hi Marie !
We are so sorry to hear of the sad loss of your Mum.
We always called her Mrs Pink Shorts-which she always laughed at-
as in summers gone by, when we used to visit, that was her favourite look...
Love to all your children- especially to Mark.
You are all in our thoughts
Love from England

Mrs. Hewett was always warm and kind in our time spent together. I miss bumping into her at Winn-Dixie, chatting and laughing. The holiday meals were always enjoyable and time with her leaves lasting sweet memories. I’m just glad she’s with Mr. Hewett and her daughter again. I thank the Hewett’s for giving me the treasure of their daughter, Marie. Her care and love for them over the years was always exemplary as well as Mark’s unconditional love and nurturing. Go with God. 💗

I am saddened to hear of Mrs. Hewett's passing. What a wonderful woman - she always had a kind word for everyone. Please know that my heart breaks for her entire family; she was (and is) dearly loved.
She is at peace and with Mr. Hewett - together they will watch over all of you.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Our family is very saddened by the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was the last sibling of a family of three brothers and four sisters. She will be greatly missed by all of us. A special thank you to her grandson Mark for his care and protection of mother for the past ten years. With his help she was able to stay in her own home and not have to endure the isolation of an assisted living or nursing home. Rest peacefully Mother. We all love you.
Your Son Dan Hewett
