    Linda Henderson and Katherine Allison says:
    Dear Rachel and Family: I am so sad at the passing of Marie. I will always remember her and beautiful smile. She always made me laugh and I will sorely miss her. My mother Katherine loved Marie as they had many things in common. She always asked about Marie and wanted to know how she was doing. I know, if she knew of her passing, that she would be very sad.
