  1. I grew up next to Mark and MArie. i have so many wonderful memories of Marie. I remember trick or treating, asking her questions on the history of Pueblo for school projects as i was growing up, and just giving a friendly hello to her when i was a kid. i have just recently heard of news of Marie. My condolences are expressed to her family in this time.

  2. Eleanor, so sorry to hear about your mother. But what a wonderful life to celebrate and remember. Prayers and peace for you and your family.
