Aunt Marie never missed an opportunity to tell me how much she loved me. I knew it because I felt it deep down in my soul. I will miss her greatly!
She would make me laugh until I cried, telling stories of her and my mother’s antics when they were young.
I will cherish those memories forever!
My love always, Aunt Marie.
