So sorry to hear about Aunt Marie’s passing.I have fond memories of years ago.l remember like yesterday staying with her for 6 weeks after Lloyd ‘s arrival to help her.She was so good to me & she would give you the shirt off her back and more besides. Take care at this difficult time. Bill & Sandra Journeay.

My heart breaks to hear about Marie’s passing. I smile when I think about her. I consider her one of my family. I can plainly visualize Marie & Mom sitting on the front steps getting caught up. I loved the way she sparkled with all her jewelry and how she offered so much warmth when I went back home. Marie will forever sparkle! xo

So Sad to hear of Aunt Marie’s passing. I have fond childhood memories of spending time in her home with Billy, Gerry and Lloyd. Billy and I were like brother and sister. My heart goes out to all you today and may God bring you peace during this difficult time.
