I will always remember Mari’s method of transportation… running.
I will always remember Mari’s laughter, trust, and innocence.
I will always remember Mari’s favorite foods.
Who is that running through my valley? She is supposed to walk!
And why is she laughing? She is supposed to be in fear!!
What magic marker? Where did she get a magic marker? What do you mean it won’t wash off? I have to repaint everything? Somebody catch that kid!!!
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.”
Mari asks God, “Do you have pancakes and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? And can you cut the crusts off?
“My cup runneth over,”
Mari asks, “More juice?”
This was not “Good-bye”. This is merely, “Until we meet again.”
