  1. Al, Michael, Patrick & Family,

    I am so sorry and shocked to hear of Marie’s passing. She was always a lovely lady and I am glad that I got to know her from work at the hospital and having breaks together. She was always so calm and nothing seemed to bother her. We had great visits when you lived in Highgate, I won’t forget those either.

    Know that I’m thinking and praying for you at this difficult time.

  2. To Al and family so sorry to read about Marie’s passing and I am saddened that I haven’t kept in touch. I have spent a difficult winter too as Steve passed away last November. I’ll be thinking of you and your family at this most difficult time. Myrna

  3. Al, Mike, Pat and family. So sorry for your loss. Marie was a wonderful lady. She was always sociable and growing up a few doors away from you I can’t remember her ever having a bad thing to say. She was great. We were all lucky to have known her.

  4. Al:
    So sorry to hear of Marie’s passing. She was full of fun and laughter especially in our “Larkwood Lariat” days. So sorry we lost contact when you moved away. She will be missed.
