Memories:

Everyone has memories…..

What moment with this wonderful lady comes to mind for you right now? Think about it good. You all have particular memories of this beautiful person….let’s talk about them.

Courageous
Marie has a courageous side, whoever would have thought she would make it through the death of her beloved husband – Mac….what a spirit…she held onto life for all it was worth, and lived for those days and Sundays to spend time with her beloved sister Evelyn and to take long daily walks and visiting her brother Jay.

Giving
Marie had a giving side too…she worked for the Seaboard Airline Railway, until her retirement, as an auditor of accounts where she added to the quality of her fellow workers lives and where she met her beloved husband Mac.

Kind
Marie had a kind side. She is deeply admired for her car of Mac, treating him with dignity and respect and for her thoughtfulness and kindness shown to her neighbors at Old Donation Apartments where she and Mac lived for many years.

Loyal
Marie was loyal to her family, brother and sisters. She defended them in all matters, even though she could get a bit rambunctious with her siblings, they were a close…unique…wonderful group. Loyal to each other to a fault.

Loving
Everyone has a loving side…hers was one of pride…pride in her family, from her husband to her mother, sisters and brother to her nephew and nieces and all others she showed her love…we have all felt it in our own way.

This lady was 90 years old. What she wouldn’t do for another day to spend with her family to break bread with them once more. Another day to travel the Blue Ridge Mountains which she and her husband did on many occasions, and on a long stroll around the neighborhood stopping by occasionally to spend a few moments with her brother. To spend time tending to her flowers in which she took such pride.

These and all our memories of Marie go with us today as she lays in the arms of a loving Lord and celebrates Resurrection with those who have gone before her – these whom we also loved.

Amen
