    To Charlie, Ruthie and Barbara,
    Sorry for the loss of your Mom, cannot believe she was 92. There were so many memories of her and your Dad at the family picnics over the years when we were kids. I will try and get down for the service next week, but I am in N.H. and it depends on the weather.
    Cousin Sandy

    Chuck, Kath, Bobbie, Joe, Ruth and Donny and all your children and grandchildren,

    Colin and I were saddened to hear of your Mom’s death even though we know it is a blessing from God. Loosing one’s Mom is so hard. We carry that loss forever and we miss them terribly. Treasure those fun memories, talk of them often. Life goes on and it’s nice to know that Marie is smiling down on all of us.

    Our Harts and Prayers are with the family. Marie was loved by so many people. She is at peace with the one that she chose over sixty five years ago. They are together looking down on everyone with love and prayers for the future.

    We will miss her Love Dot and George
