Marie always called me her little brother. all though she lived in Oklahoma & I live in Massachusetts we kept in contact by phone, each call lasted at least an hour or more with lots of stories and laughing . Marie was blessed with a wonderful family who were always there if needed. I tried to visit her as often as I could and it was always a joy to be there we had a lot of good times together.
It was always fun when one of her daughters or son was there at the same time that I was. I could go on with some stories but I would need a couple more pages so I will only tell a couple.
We would get up in the morning make the coffee then go out on the deck in our PJ's and sit and talk and laugh until the coffee was gone. Another time on one of my last visits we went grocery shopping
we got to the store and she was on one side of the grocery cart and I was on the other holding on for support we were about half way down the isle and I suddenly stopped she looks at me and said what's wrong I replied "Don't we make a cute couple" we both busted out laughing and kept laughing we really got some funny looks from other shoppers we laughed about that all the rest of the day.
Marie was a loving person who always put her family first. I will miss her very much.
