Condolence From: Gloria and John Marshall, Halifax NS
Condolence: How sad to learn that Marie has been called to her rest. For Gloria, Marie was more than a friend; she was family. Their maternal grandmothers were first cousins who emigrated from Italy about 110 years ago. Marie was a very special person, so thoughtful and totally involved in her church and in her community. We will always think of her with admiration and affection. We extend our deepest sympathy to Joe and all the family at this difficult time.

Condolence: My dear Joe
I was just told your beloved Marie has passed into her eternal reward. My heart goes out to you and your family - she was such an integral part of your life and she was certainly valued for her charity, cheerfulness, and keen interest in the world around her. I spent many hours on her porch sharing stories and viewpoints as watched the wildlife out her window. We will miss her, and thank God for the many years He shared her with us
God bless, Joe, you’ll all be in my thoughts and prayers
