Marie was such a sweet, kind, wonderful lady. She will surely be missed. Please give my love and a special hug to Maeson. You were all in my thoughts and prayers. Lois Horsens. (Maeson would know me as Gramma Lois)

Marie was such a wonderful friend to both of us. She never complained about her health issues. Even when I would ask her how she was, all was ok with her. She always was such a good listener for anything I had troubling me. And always had a good piece of advice that I will so miss. Will miss her until we meet again.

Marie was the definition of Friendship.. Unselfish, generous with her time and her spirit. She always wanted to know about 'You... What's going on with you?" Encouraging and upbeat no matter what was going on in her life at the time. She was a 'drop everything for you' kind of friend. She said to me often: "We will get through this. We can do this." It was her mantra, and now its mine. Every time I say it or think it, I will think of her. I'll always be grateful for her lessons to me.
Thoughts and prayers are with Matt, Jennie, and Maeson. Loved your Mom a whole lot.
