    I want everyone to know that Marianne was my mother. I love her with all my heart and I am the person that I am today because of her. I still feel that this is a dream that I can not wake up from but I know that she is at peace. I feel her presence all around me and I know that I will see her again when the Lord calls me home. I'll miss her words of wisdom and encouragement but my Dad will be there for me and I will be there for him. Good bye Mom - I love you!!

    Marianne was our dear friend and we will miss her so much. She was a great person - always so ready to help anyone. We have so many wonderful memories of the time we spent with her. We know how much she loved Leonard and her family. She had such a great sense of humor and you just felt better by talking to her. She is at peace now and has no more pain but we will all miss her so much.
