I am so sorry that I cannot be there to celebrate the life of my sister with my other family members. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Things I remember about Marie, she made the best goulash ever - especially when she and Inez came to visit me in Germany. We came back from a trip tried and hungry. Somehow she found stuff to make goulash and we say to this day it was the best every made in over 30 years. She came to help me when the May 3rd tornado hit in Moore OK. And the sisters did so enjoy each other when we made the two week Sister Trip. The word "Recalculation" will always be a part of our vocabulary. In the last few years my sisters and brother were able to come together and have wonderful times at dinners we shared. Those are precious memories never to be forgotten.
