She lived up the hill from me as kids

She was one who stood alone. In that I mean she was outstanding in my memory from early on. We went to grammar school through high school. Marie had a quiet kindness that is my memory. Oddly I remember her walk, yes strange as this sounds. She walked with her fingers stuck in her front pockets taking short steps not long strides that she could easily have done. Marie was tall as am I. Had no contact since high school. Always held in esteem she was. Her humbled power will not go forgotten. Admired she is. May her journey be remembered… Mary Lou, Oyster Bay
