In Loving Memory Of MARIE H. MCCREADY BLAKE Sept. 5, 1972 – Aug. 13, 2004 Dear Marie, It’s been one year since you’ve been gone, sometimes it seems like forever – sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday. For more than 4 years you fought for your life. You showed such strength, determination and courage. You gave us the strength to carry on. There are the little things that we miss: The way you always tooted when you drove by the house; the gatherings for the cook outs w/ your friends & watching you and Mariah play with the ferrets. But most of all Marie we miss you so very very much. Even though this emptiness can never be filled, we take comfort in spending time with Mariah & knowing that through her your spirit will live on forever. All our love, Dad, Sue, Meagan & all your friends & family.
