Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I was lucky enough to have shared many great times with Mari over the years, as we had known each other since our days in Queenston school. The one story I often tell about Mari happened when she was living here in Toronto. Being the incredible thoughtful kind person she was, she asked me if I wanted to volunteer at the local food bank one Saturday. The two of us set off to do some good work that day but got hopelessly lost on our way and ended up arriving to the food bank just as the volunteers were taking what we thought was a well-deserved lunch break. Since the two of us had spent hours wandering the streets of Toronto we thought it would be ok to have a sandwich. Unfortunately it turned out that the snack was handed out at the END of the volunteer's day, so not only did we not participate in the days' activities but we ate the free lunch that was supposed to be the reward for a day of hard work. We both felt bad about what happened but also had a good long laugh at ourselves. It was always fun to spend the day with Mari and while I didn't actually help anyone that day she at least made me feel good about trying. To me that was Mari in a nutshell: a kind heart and a lot of fun to be with. There are countless other fond memories I have of Mari and I look forward to a time when I can share stories of her with friends and family in person. She was the kindest person I've know in my life and I will always miss her friendship. -Steve - Posted by: Stephen Dutcheshen (Friend) on: Apr 25, 2021
