Dear David and Family..

Please accept my most heartfelt Sympathy for the loss of Marie. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of grief. May your fond memories bring you all comfort in the days ahead; and may your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together. As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. But most of all, from each other; that’s what Marie would want.

In my heart I will always remember Marie; Funny, Loud and so full of Life and Love… Her door was always open to all and you never EVER left her house hungry. She put a lot of Love in her cooking and it showed. I know Marie aka Tina Turner is singing and dancing with all the Angels…

I do know for certain that we never lose the people we Love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their Love leaves an indelible imprint in our hearts and our memories. We find comfort in knowing that your lives have been enriched by having shared their love…

Love Always

To all of Marie's family
I can't tell you how sad I was to hear of Marie's passing. She had the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known. I remember being kids, and staying at Grandma Rossi's. We used to have so much fun, and drive poor Grandma crazy!!! I miss those days with all my cousins, and remember them fondly. But even as we grew up, and didn't see each other as often, when we would get together it was as if no time had passed. The love and laughter was always there. RIP CUZ, I'll never forget you. I'm so sorry I can't be there, but please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Lots and Lots of Love,
Cousin Linda

I wish i were able to say goodbye to you. I will treasure the last time we hugged and kissed, you were so sick but had to get out of bed to spend time with me.Even though we didn't see one another everyday because of our busy lives we talked everyday, we always stayed connected to update one another.I can recall us getting caught up in our conversations and blocking out the rest of the world and never got sick of each others voice. Every time we were together most of the time their were endless laughter.So this is a thank you for not only being my best friend but the sister i never had. Thank you for the memories together , you were the friend i could of always been myself around from good to bad.We have been through it all and we helped one another through life's high and lows.I'm still in a state of shock i will miss you dearly.May you rest in peace in Paradise. Above all else you were the Sister i never had. Love Loraine
