Every once in a while you meet someone that is so kind and real that you feel like you've known them all of your life. Marie was one one of those people to me. She was absolutely PRECIOUS and she will be sorely missed. I write to offer my deepest sympathy to the entire Thacker family and all of Marie's other loved ones. May your beautiful memories with her carry you through your time of deep sorrow.
