I love grandma soo much!!! She was always willing to do anything! My favorite memories was watching her try to snorkel in Hawaii and help me paint a school picture while smelling her famous buns fill the air. You will be missed but glad you are at peace.

Marie was a wonderful person. i think I made her day one time at Pembilier, when I told her she looked like her mother. I know you will miss her, but what a wonderful life and family she had.
