My father, Earl Tincher, and I are so very sad to hear of Marie’s passing. We were very fond of Marie. She was such a sweet lady! The Tincher family is in our hearts and prayers.

My deepest sympathies to all in the family for your loss. I have never met Marie in person, but got to talk to her and communicate by mail after an introduction through my best friend Karen (Smith) Rouhier. She was a wonderful person and I am glad to have gotten to talk to her and write with her when I had the chance.
