  • One of many memories of you was the time you came over to our house and you saw one of my R&B music album covers and you said “who does this belong to” I said “me”. You said “really?.. good taste with your big smile”. Another, memory and I will speak on behalf of my parents was your big hugs! My mom is less than 5 feet tall and you would call out “Mom!” , it didn’t matter where we were in public or at the house. You would give her the biggest hugs, I swear she disappeared for that length of time.. LOL. She loved each and every hug. Our family will miss you, we will think of you often and thank you for being part of our family. Until we see each other again God Speed and prayers for you always! Sending you love and big hugs!

  • Mare, I will miss you so much!! I first met you when you worked at Southland in the 80’s and I worked at The Comfort Inn at the International Center. We quickly become best friends and were ‘ joined at the hip’. You would set up hotel accommodations for travelers coming into Southland and I would comp rooms for you so you could just get away for a weekend. I will miss going to dinner or lunch at the Coachman or Olive Garden with you. I will miss how we were joined at the hip. All our hours of funny phone conversations where we would laugh for hours..all the texts! All the movies we would go to. One of my favorite memories is when we went to Wendover a few years back to see Boz Skaggs! Soooo fun! Another time, years ago when we went to Wendover with my family and friends and my dad was sitting at the Black Jack table and you walked up to him and said, “Dad, can I have 20 bucks?!?! ” . After that he always introduced you to everyone as his ‘second daughter’. And you were! I love you so much. My family loves you so much. Landon, you always called him ‘your nephew’ loves you so much. We all love and miss you so very much. I thought of you as the sister I never had. Thank you so very much for all the love and support you brought to my life, my families life. I will miss you like no other . Until we meet again…BIG HUGS from ALL OF US! Thank you for my wonderful pot holders, hat, and scarf you knitted for me. I have and will always cherish that you made those for me. Love you Mare!!!
