    Ms. Marie was a foster grandparent at Sugar Hill Head Start. Such a wonderful person. All the children and staff here at Sugar Hill just loved Ms. Marie. Ms. Marie would always bring me candy once or twice a week. I always had candy in my desk drawer. She kept my sweet tooth satisfied. She dropped by even after she no longer came to Sugar Hill. She will be surely missed by all of us.

    She was my friend and I loved her so much. I could confide my feelings and tell her my stories all the time. She understood and loved me too. I had the best time with her. I will miss her so much and my world is a little emptier without her. I will keep my wonderful memories of her forever. It was privilege to meet and have her as my friend.

    Ms. Marie such a wonderful friend. She was a foster grand parent at Sugar Hill and all the staff and especially the children loved Ms. Marie. She personally kept my desk drawer with plenty of candy in it. Every week she would bring me more. I loved talking to her. She will surely be missed by all of us at Sugar Hill.
