To the girls, I’m sorry to hear of your moms passing but you know she’s in such a beautiful place right now. I always had a great respect for Marie. She was a hard worker, a go getter who loved her family very much. I know each one of you have wonderful memories of your mother. Family is everything. Stay close to each other!
