Marie, my mind and soul is so confused and doesn't know what way to go. Seems like yesterday we were watching Transporter yet at the same time it's like you are sitting next to me, other days it seems like you've been gone forever. You will forever be in my heart and thoughts never to be forgotten. I love you dearly and miss you terribly.

To the Marchand family:
Marie was very dear to my heart and I have always been so proud of her ability to move forward and do the things that were important to her, especially her love for music. Her struggles in life were many and more often than not she somehow found the strength to endure. My heart is heavy and I can only hope that she is at peace now. So bright, so talented and such a loving soul, I am so sorry for your loss.

I have been heartbroken over this. I knew Marie during her high school years and always smile when I think of her beautiful, sweet, funny and caring ways. She was a very special and resilient teenager who always managed to shine through her struggles and find her way back. I know she is at peace in heaven and hope that in time her family can know some peace. She is with you in your hearts and will be forever young. My condolences are with you
