  3. First I want to say, I’m sorry I didn’t get to the services. Marie, or Aunt Marie? She was only 10 years yonger than my mom,yet she was my cousin.As a kid I couldn’t figure it out.All I know is growing up, it was go see Aunt Mary & Uncle John and spend the rest of the time playing with Nancy&Maryann.My mom (Suzanne)was her maid of honor. I wonder if after Nancy was born, my mom wanted to try again for a boy, BUT surprise, here I am.Your mom, grandmother was a sweet,gracious woman.I’ll always remember the peony in the yard, and how my Mom loved them and how Marie remembered she did..Life goes by so quick, we really have to try to be the close family we once were. Like visiting on Sundays, Giving each other Palm on the holy days,(while we’re alive)and saying you’re special to me.Marie(Aunt Marie) was special. I let her call me Jeannie(Though I hate that name) but it didn’t matter, because- I loved her and I’ll miss her. Love, Jean
