    This is Sarah Williams. I knew Marie and “Doc” from working at Green River Lumber. I always, always really liked your Mom. She was always cheery, always positive, and very sweet and especially thoughtful. I was saddened to learn of her passing. I am sure you will miss her a great deal. Please accept my condolences on the the loss of your Mother. She was a very special person.

  3. I am so sorry about Marie’s death..she was one of the first people I met when I moved to the Berkshires and I was very grateful to know her and her family. She was my aide on the bus route I drove for a couple years. She and her family would pet sit for me when needed. My sympathies to all of her family.

    Jen
