Her legacy
The Legacy that is "Marina Gabriel Dollard"  
Life is precious and few people live and acknowledge with certanity and truth what beliefs that they hold closest to them.She taught me this and I live through her example. She didn't have to look "left or right" or behind her when she made a decision. Her love for life was always a beacon that shone in her eyes. She enjoyed everyday experiences; what is more important, she rarely showed displeasure or spoke ill of any difficult situation she confronted.
Marina showed and demonstrated that she was a"pillar of strength" and stood steadfast always in her convictions. She loved life and the family around her. She was blessed with such a strong spirit, formed from years of living a simple life. Nothing was surreal to her; she was practical in every aspect of her life! All of this was exemplified by the way she lived, and was even more evident in the closing chapter of her life"she was very brave"
She lived and she epitomizes what it means to have "grace and dignity" and her memory has been emblazoned within me.
Most importantly her beauty that was so evident on the outside..emanated from the inside. God blessed you..you certainly can be counted as one of Gods own now.
As I walk the miles of my life that remain, I certainly will pause and thank you for giving me the same unbreakable and undiminished spirit!
YOU ARE MY GREATEST HERO !
