There was no one like Auntie Marie and Uncle John. No matter if you were related by “blood” or not – you were always made to feel welcome and special and included in everything. More than one pot of coffee was shared and lots of cherished memories made and shared. Our deepest sympathy to the entire Kendal clan. Hugs and kisses.

Relation: Ex sister-in-law

So sad to learn of Marie’s passing so quickly after her beloved husband, John. They truly were a pair and the photo of them when so young – is a wonderful testimony to their love and long lived marriage. They, as a couple, and individually, were so loving to one another, to their family, relatives and friends. They leave behind wonderful memories for their children. My condolences to all.
