I got to know Ms. Marie at Brookdale where I volunteer doing sing-alongs every month. She was always in good spirits and had a smile for me. She loved it when I played the big band hit, "Marie," for her. I got to spend some time with Marie on the first Saturday in May and I was told that she was not doing well. Everyone was shocked to see her come to sing and although she dozed some, she was mostly alert. I sat with her during lunch and we visited. I was told that she hadn't been eating, but she was enjoying her food that day. It was a good visit, although it was hard knowing that it would be our last visit. She was a precious lady and I wish I could have known her in her younger years. Today I was at Brookdale and several residents told me how much they missed her. I will keep your family in my prayers.
