  1. What can I say about a best friend and the best sister in law ever! From the moment I became a part of her family, I knew we would have a deep bond forever! Even when she was sick she would still come to see her mother and myself once a week. She always said she wanted to come home . We would shop and go to lunch even if she was not feeling well. Up until about a month ago, we were still texting and talking on the phone almost daily. She is the strongest person I have ever known. The absolute love she had for her family cannot be denied. The fight that she had in her was beyond inconceivable. This has not been an easy road for that amazing family that is for sure. I know that she has hugged my son and Gan in heaven because I asked her too. Marie would do anything for her family.

  2. Sweetest, most sincere and genuine woman! Marie was a blessing to all who knew and loved her. Never a moment where she saw anything but the best in people and given situations. She will be greatly missed, but I am thankful that the light that she brought into our lives will forever live on within us. Prayers being lifted for her family. We love you, Marie!

  3. Marie was one of the sweetest childhood friends a girl could have. We attended kindergarten through high school together. She always greeted you with that contagious smile. My prayers are with you, her family. I love you Marieđź’•

  4. What can I say about the best woman ever? Marie always had a smile on her face and her laugh was amazing . I worked with her for over 15 years. She was simply the best. I wanted to be her when I grew up. Whenever you were feeling overwhelmed with school, which was a lot, her words were…its going to be fine, or here’s a straw suck it it up. Lol! I have so many wonderful memories of her. My heart is broken, but I know that she is rejoicing in heaven and pain free. I love you Marie and I will miss my sweet friend! Praying for family and friends!
