In Marie's final months as she battled Leukemia, she was surrounded by her wonderful husband, daughter and son-in-law, who took wonderful care of her. She always said she had the best son-in-law in the world. Maria loved her daughter Missie more than words could say. Missie was her only child and she felt she was truly blessed.
