To my dearest friend Susan and her loving family. I am so sorry for your loss. Some of my fondest memories are with your family. I loved your mother. She always welcomed me into her home or greeted me with a warm smile. She was always thoughtful, asking about my mom, I will always remember that. What I loved most about Marie was that she was true to herself. She loved dressing up for everything. I can't remember a time she wasn't wearing something in a leopard pattern or something that sparkled or shined, and her hair and make-up were flawless. She was a beautiful woman. I always looked forward to seeing your mom and dad and I am grateful to have had them in my life. In time I hope you find comfort and peace in knowing that Nanette (Marie) made a difference in my life and I am sure many others. Susan, Teddy, Steven and the rest of the family, I will always be here for you and thank you for letting me be a part of your beautiful family.
