Christine, Bethany, and Ryan, I’ve never met you, but I loved Marie more than words can say. She was the grandmother I never got to grow close to. When I was a child, my grandma was very ill and I used to say, “When I grow up, I want to be a doctor only for grandma.” I never got that opportunity because my grandma died when I was six years old, but I did get the opportunity to serve Marie as her nurse. There were many times when I wished I could be her private duty nurse because I just wanted to sit and listen to her stories about her brother-cousin who used to beat her up as a child and stories about the farm she grew up on or stories about her past husbands. Spending time with Marie was always the highlight of my shift and I’m going to I miss her terribly. She let me spoil her and I spoiled her like I would have done for my grandma. The last thing I was able to do for her was keep her comfortable in her final moments and my heart just wishes that I could have done more for her. I am so so so sorry for your loss. She was an incredible woman, mother, and friend and she is already missed. Marie shaped my life for the better. She was an inspiration for me to become reiki certified and while I haven’t completed my training yet, when I do, I will practice reiki in honor of Marie. She taught me about the power of healing touch. There were many times where I was able to help her become pain free by simply willing the pain out of her body for her while I applied her arthritis cream (Curse that evil man Arthur-itis, she would say). I loved her like my own family. I will carry my love for her in my heart until we meet again in Heaven. If there is anything at all that I can do for you during this difficult time, or beyond, please do not hesitate to reach out. All my love,
