My Aunt Marie passed away last night but I can't help but to feel relieved. The picture above is from this summer and she was just not happy where she was. She was ready to move on then. Don't get me wrong, although her body was failing, her mind was sharper than ever. She was cracking us up during our visit with her. I will always remember her as a strong, independent woman who ALWAYS said what was on her mind.....in her gruff, French accent! :) She is my Grandma Frenchie's cousin but we called her Aunt Marie. She treated my mom and aunties as if they were her own children. A selfless woman who is definitely creating some laughter in the heavens above. Je t'aime Aunt Marie and we will see you again.
