I am so sorry to hear about Marie. Mama (Edith/Nook) had/has such affection for her cousins, and I've heard countless stories about the time she spent at "Aunt Rosie and Uncle Ralph's" growing up. In fact, those memories are so special that they now occupy her mind most days. (I can always tell when she thinks I am Mae or Marie because she wants to know how "Aunt Rosie" is.) To all of you, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Marie was a special lady, and I pray your loving memory of her will bring you comfort and peace.

The passing of a dear love one, is always a difficult experience for the family. Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer, that we can experience God's love and comfort in the most intimate way. May you all find comfort as you pour out your heart in prayer, to "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4).
