You are apart of who I am, you made me who I am. Always an adventure going here going there weeks every summer I spent with you. So many memories I am flooded with.We did so much It was never a dull moment. You were always happy outgoing and a big piece of you stuck with me. I have to remember to have that “if you can’t see it why wear it” attitude! So happy Nevada got to meet you and spend some time with you. We will miss you and you will always be in my heart I Love You!

My deepest sympathy to Marie's family. I hope your fond memories of her give you comfort. Prayer to God for comfort
will also help you to get through this difficult time. Our Creator views death as an enemy that he will eliminate.
(Isaiah 25:8) Never again will we mourn the passing of a loved one. Those who have died will live again as
stated in Acts 24:15. I hope these wonderful promises from God give you comfort.
