  1. We would like to offer our sincere sympathy on Marie’s passing. Jim’s mother, Edith Ridley, and Marie were very close friends. And she has been an “aunt” to our family and children.
    She is a very dear lady and much loved by all of us.
    God bless you all,
    Jim, Kathy, Wade and David Ridley
