    Marie became my friend while I was a patient in Skilled Care several years ago and I found her to be a very kind giving person. I had known she was a teacher at Boonshill but only had the pleasure of enjoying her bubbly personality at Donalson. My sympathy to her family especially her precious Tammy whom she loved so deeply. May God Bless You.
