I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Omie when my dearly beloved Michelle fell in love with her grandson Jeremy.
Omie or Marie as her dear husband Willi calls her, is one of the most incredible women I have ever met. There is not a heart big enough for all the love that she has in her. She’s a delight to chat with and talk about her passion for cooking and her passion for her incredible family. As well as all the stories she shared of days gone by. Oh how I will miss visiting with you and your most wonderful smiling face. You are indeed one of the biggest treasures I had the honor of knowing.
To your family, my heartfelt condolences.
