  1. My thoughts go out to the family. Marie was a great lady who cared about our community and people with special needs. Spent a lot of time at the Wright home, with Rob and John – and Marie was kind enough to let me store my vw beetle in her carriage house during many winters (she and her husband had owned and loved several vw’s). She will be missed.
