Marie Jeanne Iribarren
Marie did so much for our community, she loved people and everyone loved her. When my step-dad had passed away, Marie had sent my Mother a letter. My mother never told us about the letter, but as we went through my Mom's personal belongings when she passed we found Marie's letter. Her selfless random act of kindness touched our hearts.
Thank you Marie for your sweet kind heart and acts of kindness. We will never forget you.
