McBrine Family:

Marie and Joe were always a joy to talk with at our frequent encounters at Dysarts over the years. She was a fine lady and we know she will be missed by family and friends. You do have the comfort of knowing that you do not have to sorrow as others which have no hope ~ knowing that she is with our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. II Corinthians 5:8 "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you all as we wait His soon return.

My deepest sympathies to all the family. She was a great asset to Farmers Market. Thinking of Jud and his family.
