Marie dear, I am sure you know how much I treasure you as my friend. It makes me sad to know that you are gone now but at the same time I thank God for not letting you live longer in pain. Though not enough time, I feel lucky to have had the chance to have known you. All the laughter and tears, the friendship, the company, even quarrels and disagreements we've had, I will always remember with gladness. You are a true friend and I thank you for everything you have thought me and done for me. You have been a good confidante and I admire you for all that you were. I hope that Madi will grow smart, courageous, and kind like you. Thank you for loving my baby too.
I will miss you, Marie. Please say hello to my kuya for me, ok?
