Marie was a remarkable woman.Her intelligence, thoughtfulness, and dedication to her health are just a few of her character traits that I remember.I will never forget that she drove (her words, of course) "100 miles to take a yoga class" with me.

Thank you for letting me be a part of Marie's care. I learned a lot about Marie in the few hours I took care of her. May the memories she has left all of her family and friends bring a smile to all.

Marie was an inspiration to all who knew her.Active until illness overtook her, her positive attitude inspired many to "keep moving" even tho life is sometimes difficult.
