I’ve been trying to remember the first time I ever met Marie. She used to laugh and say I came to the door with shorts and flip flops on and naturally she was standing there in her usual perfectly dressed way- hair immaculate, jewelry, stylish outfit and of course high heels. Even though our styles were opposite, we became fast friends and coteachers. We taught together at St James and then again at Montgomery Academy. I loved seeing Marie on TV when I would see her singing in the Frazer choir. That’s another thing we had in common. We were both Methodists. I was at First Methodist and she at Frazer. We had many conversations about our beliefs and I know today she’s in heaven. Due to COVID Phillip and I probably will not attend the service Wednesday but we will be there in spirit. We will send a donation to the Frazer music department in Marie’s honor. Love and prayers for all of you.
