    Ms. Marie will always have a very special place in my heart. What a wonderful lady she was. I feel extremely blessed that I got to know her and that our family got to live next door to her for several years. She was a blessing to us all. We love you, Ray. You are on our mind, in our hearts and in our prayers.
