I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Marie. She always had a smile for everyone. I was a classmate of hers at Corry High School and I worked with her at Blair many years ago. At our last class reunion, I spent some time visiting with her. She was a kind, loving person. Hoping that your fond memories help ease the pain of your loss.

My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Marie. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort through the loving and happy memories that you share and those that you keep close to your hearts. May you also look to our loving Heavenly Father, the GOD of all comfort, to provide what you need at this very sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4, Psalms 83:18). He promises us that very soon, "He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Revelation 21:3,4, Isaiah 33:24. He also promises us that there will be a resurrection of our loved ones that we have lost in death, and they will have the opportunity to live forever in perfect health in Paradise right here on earth. (John 5:28,29, Psalms 37:10,11). What wonderful promises! Can you imagine a time on earth when there will be no more sickness, pain or death? May all of God's promises give you a measure of comfort, peace, hope and strength. I personally found very comforting information on when I experienced the loss of my parents and siblings.
