Marianne, you were the bright spot in my day for over 15 years at MAMS. You always knew what to do to calm us down and lift us up. You solved most of our problems with ease and grace. You were a very special person to everyone you met. You
will be missed. My thoughts go out to Jim and Jayme.
Love Bonnie
