  • Cheryl, boys and all of Marie’s family,
    Words cannot describe the great sense of loss we are feeling at this time. We loved Marie. Everyone loved Marie. Not only was she a great friend with a warm smile-but she would be there for you no matter what. We have many fond memories of Marie- from gatherings at the firehouse and other parties at the trailer (watching wrestling pay per views). Know she loved all of you very much and no matter where she is today she will be that guardian angel watching over you. Our deepest sympathies.
