  11. I was shocked to read of Marie’s passing from this world. I only met her a couple of years ago for a very brief few minutes. Her memory has stayed with me for these years. She was a very caring person. I remember how much she loved her children and family. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

  12. Donna, Martha, Donald, Janice and Larry and family,

    I was so sorry to hear of Marie’s passing and also so sorry I was unable to attend her service. I have wonderful memories of Marie in our younger days when I had the privilege of spending time with yall on the egg farm. I thought that was so much fun, a lot more fun than a tobacco field! Uncle Herman and Aunt Frances were the best!! Marie was such a sweet child and lady. i hope you all take comfort in the asssurance of Marie’s salavation and knowing she is resting in the arms of Jesus! Love to you all!!
