Dear Aunt Marie, May you rest in peace in Heaven. You were always kind to my brothers sister and me. I remember growing up I always looked forward to the opportunity to visit you with my family in Levittown, Babylon and in Brentwood. You were a free spirit and it was comforting when the whole family was around to see you, my mother and Aunt Margie hanging out. Later on we worked together in the 5&10cent store in town and you guided me and watched out for me. I'm glad you spent your final years with Eileen and Regina and their families.Jim Morcerf

Although I have not seen my Aunt Marie for a couple of decades, I have fond memories of her and remember a kind Aunt who always hooked me up with treats. I used to visit her at the 5 and dime she worked at, and hit her up for candy there as well. She is joining up with her two sisters in heaven. Bob

I remember Aunt Marie as a sweet fun-loving, always optimistic and smiling aunt. She was my mother's sister. She will be missed and always in our prayers.Barbara Morcerf

She loved every flower even some that were weeds,So much love she would plant with each little seed,But just like her flowers she was part of Gods plan,So when it was her time he reached down his hand,He looked through the Garden searching for the best,That's when he found her, it was her time to rest,It was hard for those who loved her, to just let her go,But God had a spot in his garden, that needed a gentle soul,So when you start missing her, remember if you just wait,When God has a spot in his garden, She'll meet you at the gate....Love you Mom, Meet us at the Gate with Dad!
