I love you cuz. You will be missed by so many, but I know we will see you again. Rhonda & Kevin Valentine , April 8, 2021 Sweet Girl you will always be in our hearts. Iris Decker, April 6, 2021 Marie You were such a beacon of love and kindness! I know you are with our Lord, Jesus Christ! You are wearing a crown of Glory! You were the example of Christ! I wish we'd had a longer friendship. But we did not. I will always refere you! I'm happy you are home with love ones! Although many here will miss you! Nancy Jo VanMeter, April 5, 2021 Marie was a beautiful woman with such a sweet personality. We will always remember her as being such a bright light when she walked into a room regardless if it was with family or friends. It was a delight to visit with my cousin when she was able to attend our annual family reunions held in McKinney. Family was very important to her. I know how much Marie wanted to be with us all again when she recently moved back to Texas. Unfortunately, her life was unexpectedly cut short and she is now with our good Lord. May she rest in Heaven and be with her loved ones again. Love you Marie and may you smile again. Patricia Taylor Shotwell, April 3, 2021
