Janeen Rose, November 1, 2017 Please accept my most sincere sympathies for the loss of Rose Marie. May the prayers of all people who love you bring solace to your family during this difficult time. Carl Pavlich- long time friend of the Miran Family -San Antonio, November 1, 2017 Marie will be firmly tucked in my heart always. I am going to miss my dear friend. Marie was so many things to so many people. She was a wife, mother of a daughter & son, a grandmother, a sister, a friend, a teacher, and a person that gave so fully of herself that you never doubted if she loved you or cared for you. She was kind, faithful, funny, charming, serious, loving , witty, smart as a whip, and, "Oh my Stars and Garters!" she was a treasure beyond value. As we would talk about her family, I could tell how well she loved her sweet family. Bill was still her Sweetheart and let you know that she still had that sparkle in her eyes when she talked about him. She was so proud of her son and daughter, her son -in-law, and her precious grandchildren were perfectly delightful and she loved them so very deeply. She glowed when she spoke of her family and friends. One thing I know, she will be sorely missed. I know that she is in heaven and she will be waiting for us all when it is our time to go. Until that day, my heart will miss my friend. so very much. My prayers follow her friends and family. Whenever we talked, we always hugged and said, "Love you and See you soon." I will look forward to the that day when we can laugh and be together again. Janet Brown, October 31, 2017 I’m so sorry to hear about Marie's passing. She was a special lady. When I was young , she was always kind to me and I always felt like she was a second Mom. My heart breaks for your families loss. I’ll be praying for healing in your family.
Clint Patterson, October 30, 2017 Marie was a one-of-a-kind special person. So gracious to my son Jake when he would come by to sell whatever latest school fundraiser he was having... I have enjoyed being her and Bill's neighbor for only just a few years. In that time, we've come to know Marie and Bill, they have been the sweetest people anyone can meet. While I know this caught us all by surprise, I take comfort in having gotten to know such a special, kind, and loving person. She will TRULY be missed. Todd, Stephanie, Garron, Hannah, Jake, Koda, Charlie, and KK (the cat) Todd Weeks, October 30, 2017 Marie and Bill have always been dear friends that seemed more like family. Whenever we thought of any family event we thought of them. They were with us recently to celebrate my birthday. Being with them and seeing their devotion to each other was always a joy. This is about Marie but she always liked Bill with her. She was terrific in many ways and my prayers are with her loved ones. Rita Rogers, October 29, 2017 Bill and family, Though it's with sadness that I must acknowledge Marie's passing, I also recall so many happy times we had together in the days of our youth when the loss of our dear ones seemed such a distant impossibility. So it will be those times that I will think upon. May God bless you all in this difficult period of transition. James McAlister
