So proud to be a cousin to beautiful Marie. For years she has tenderly cared for her mother -- a promise she made to her daddy, who died in 1983. Marie blessed so many lives with her love and kindness. We will all miss her and are grateful for the time that we shared together. Heaven is rejoicing to welcome Marie Home.
