  18. Dear Ed, Maureen, Anne-Marie and extended family members,
    So wanted to be there to offer my personal condolences.
    Pre-committed to driving a patient to hospital off island on Monday March 11/19.
    Marie always acknowledged and accepted me.
    I remember Marie for her tireless efforts to achieve equality.
    She shone as an advocate for those less fortunate.
    Her longevity speaks for her desire to never give up.
    I’m honored for the memories.
    My sincerest sympathies for your loss.
    Warmest regards,
    Dave Parent
