Sister Marie was a beautiful person, inside and out. It sounds so cliche, but it was so true in this case. I wish I had known her longer, but in the year+ I had the pleasure of her friendship, she showed me such kindness. I only hope I can put love and kindness out into the world in the same way she did.

I wanted to speak to you yesterday and looked at the sky and asked for a sign that you were around. Then I am sitting in my living room and a small butterfly is flying around and lands next to me and stays for a couple of hours. This morning again a beautiful butterfly greeted me at the door.Thanks❤ Read your last text from just 6 days ago and wished I could text you again but I know your looking over me. Thanks for all the advice, hugs and especially your love. Rest in Peace Sr. Marie and Mom will be fine! To the Jalbert Family I am so sorry for your loss.
