I went to school with Marie, but we lost touch after high school. She was a truly kind person and I remember her with great fondness. Prayers for peace and comfort for her loved ones. Karen Davis
Christy you will be in my prayers tomorrow. Your mom was a very special lady. When she had back surgery as a teenager she and I walked miles up and down Kings Church Road. Michelle Thieneman
So sorry for your loss. I knew Rose from Eastern Star.
