Marie was an effervescent spirit who treasured her loved ones and her days. Always buoyant, even in times of trouble, she rose against adversity with a joyful soul. Marie loved her Lord and followed His ways throughout her life. While her family and friends will miss her, we are comforted that God has opened his arms to welcome her home.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
