    We are saddened to hear of “Big” Marie’s death. We know this to be the beginning of her new journey, not the end. We will miss her very much. Dad and I did visit Aunt Marie and Uncle Ray last summer several times and Aunt Marie did remember who Dad was. But she welcomed us heartily just the same. Our sincere condolences to you all, we hope to see some of you soon. Dad and I will not be able to make it up at this time.
