Cindy, I am so sorry to heard about Marie. I know you loved each other dearly and you will miss her company. I lost my husband a week ago today so I am learning what it’s like to be alone. Mourning is different for everyone of course but the best thing are the memories that no one can take away from you. God Bless you. I still have your tn so I will give you a call sometime soon. I miss our talks at work. I enjoyed working with you.

Marie looks so cute in her picture. I know how much you’re going to miss her. You were the best caregiver, ‘mom’, sister, and greatest friend.
