    “Though she be tiny, she be fierce.” Enjoy your peace in heaven, Marie. You earned it.

    I only had the pleasure of meeting Marie on one or two occasions. She was an absolute delight, and I wish I had a chance to know her better. She was a wonderful person, and she raised a great son. Rest In Peace my dear..
