  1. Marie, I know we have not kept in tough over the years and I am sorry about that, for I feel family is very important and you are part of my family. I did not know Michael, having met him only once, but I share your loss and your pain, for I know what it is to lose a beloved husband. I send my deepest sympathy to you and the family. Love, Jeannie

  2. You may be gone from my sight but you will never be gone from my heart. Love you, Dad.

  3. I would like to offer my deepest condolences to your family. I have known Mike for almost as long as I have known his sister. I know that you were the “apple of your sister’s eye” and you always watched out for her. You will be missed greatly and I know you and Gerald will have a lot of time to catch up on things!! May God bless your family and my thoughts and prayers will be with them always! Love, Robbin

  4. Marie, I’ll never forget the phone call I received the night you met Mike. And when I met him, I understood why. It made me happy to know you had found someone who could make you so happy. You’ve had many wonderful years together and I’ll always have a picture of the two of you in my heart as you were at my wedding…. smiling, laughing, joking and blissfully happy.
