    Mrs. Marie was a very special member of our Red Hat YaYa group. Such a special woman and loved by all of us. We were out of the country and just learned last night about her joining God in Heaven. Prayers that God wraps His comforting arms around all of you during this sad time. Please know she was super special to us!!
