We will miss our dear friend, Marie. Her life was a Gift to all of us who knew and loved her. She made us laugh, always had a smile and a glowing spirit! She was an inspiration to us, for her bravery and love of life. She always told us to keep having fun!
Marie and Richie were a special couple and we all loved watching them glide across the dance floor with her synchronized foxtrot steps! We will cherish our memories of the many fun times we had together.
Our Love and deepest sympathy goes out to Richie and all his family during this difficult time. Linda and Larry
