It is said that a person is defined by their works and actions. It is at times like this that we look at a person's time on this earth and then reflect on the interactions that we have had with them and the acts that they have performed. I do know with Marie Garito every act that she performed had purpose. The purpose was always related to her family or to her God. Marie's family is a reflection of these acts. As I have grown to know her children and their families I realize who they actually are and how like their Mother they have become. They show a reflection of charity, love and respect for each other, their families, friends and for their parents. When you see this reflection it is a proof of the investment of love and support that has come from the parents and become the practice for the children. What a superb legacy Marie has in a wonderful family including children, grandchildren and great grand children. These and future generations will continue the spiritual integrity and love that she has demonstrated. What a good life! Becky McMahan

A kind heart stopped, a beautiful lady was taken from us, but entered into the Kingdom of God. She was received into the open arms of Our Lord, and embrace by all of those who have gone before her. She is together once again with her love of her life, as she is walking hand in hand with Dominic. Our condolences to the family, it is so hard to lose a mother, grandmother, friend. God bless you. May you find comfort in your memories.
