@MarieB is, and has been for so long, a cornerstone here at TuDiabetes. She’s one of the most caring and helpful people I know and has touched so many of us with her knowledge, encouragement and love. She has dedicated countless hours to our forum, shared her quilting skills to create beautiful works of art to celebrate us and TuDiabetes (The Word in Your Hand Quilt), shared her love of food by posting recipes, advocated for all of us through organized programs, and so much more over the years.
Today marks 50 years since Marie’s diabetes diagnosis. Acknowledging such a day conjures different emotions in each of us ranging from one end of the spectrum of sadness and grief all the way to the other of pride and celebration.
Marie, thank you for being a part of my and Caleb’s lives. Thank you for caring and being an example of perseverance, strength and providing endless encouragement. On what I know is an emotional day, I hope you can find light and warmth in the knowledge that you have helped more people than you’ll ever know and truly made a difference in this world.
Hugs, hugs and more hugs.
