Guestbook

I only met Marie once at a family reunion at Gigis a few years ago. I wanted to stop in and introduce myself at her home some day, but Mom got sick (Delores Mead) and there never seemed time for anything. We heard of Maries passing while we were in FL for Moms funeral. Our prayers go out to the family for their loss, but perhaps our Moms are visiting in heaven. Deloress father was Nash Hollingsworth and his mother was a Sykes. Never knew Marie was a Sykes also. Small workd there in Tobermory. Cousin Carol Stokes Mead Roth

Aunt Marie, you will be missed by everyone that knew you. I can only imagine that smile on your face when you saw the face of Jesus and Uncle Richard. Give him, my daddy and my husband a big hug and kiss for me. I love you, RIP Aunt Marie.
