Everything my Grandma did was something special made with Love. She took time to add the extra touch that says “I Love You Very Much”. She fixed hurts with a kiss and smile and told good stories Grandma-Style. It was warm and cozy on her lap for the secret telling or a nap. And when I say my Prayers at night I ask God to Bless and hold her tight. Cause when it comes to giving Hugs My Grandma’s arms was filled with LOVE! Now you are an Angel from above: My Grandma was one lady that was Loved by everyone that came in contact with her! Till we are together again.

Marie was a mom, a grandma, a wife, a grandma to all the neighbor hood kids, a friend, a sister, an aunt and many many more titles but all good. I can not remember a time when she had a harsh word for anyone, she loved life and life loved her just like all of us left behind. But I have great satisfaction in knowing that there is a reuion going on in Heaven. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again on the other side.

Tracey, Randy and Steve, I am so very sorry for the loss of your grandmother Marie.I know she will be greatly missed by you.Tracey, you were always there for your grandma,giving her your time,love and attention.I remember stopping in to see your mom and grandma,though not as much as I could have and I feel bad about this.In those visits, she talked about how well Steve was doing, about Randy and his family, showing me pictures of the three of you and your families and seeing her eyes light up as she talked about you.Tracey,You were always your grandma’s girl,you two had a very special relationship, always had.She would get upset at anyone who created any turmoil in your life, I guess that’s the easiest way to put it into words. She will be missed, but will always be with you in your hearts and on your minds.There is nothing better than the love from a grandma,,,
