  1. Dearest Ness Family,

    Forever in our prayers,
    Steve and Linda Bobo

  2. I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. May God Bless you all during this very difficult time. Marianne was such a joy to all us during her middle school years.

  3. Melinda, Chris, Sean,
    I was saddened to learn of your beauiful Marianne’s death. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Melinda, our heart is breaking for you and your family. Marianne was such a beautiful, creative young woman. The world is diminished by her absence.

  5. Marianne was so loved. Your family showed such kindness as we stayed with them after Katrina. We will never forget the sacrifices you made. Praying that God will bring you the peace that passes all understanding in the grief we all feel. Gary & I are so thankful for the time we shared with your precious daughter.

  6. As I was reading the condolences of others who cared deeply for your loved one I could not help but to be moved to offer a bit of encouragement to your family and to express fellow feeling on the loss of such a young one. Within the Holy Bible is an account that you may find encouraging. It is located at John chapter 11 verses 1 to 45. When you are able to find the time, please read it and meditate on the account. The true God, by means of His son, desires to reverse the effects of sickness and the loss we suffer when a loved one passes. It is God’s strong desire that there be a restoration of life in fine, solid health and enduring happiness on earth under far better conditions than the present. I would be glad to share more of this hope with you, if you choose. Still, I hope the best for your family and other loved ones as you endure this loss of your precious one. May God Almighty likewise grant you all comfort. Romans 15:4

  7. What a shock to see Marianne’s obit in the paper. As one who has been there with the loss of a loved one, time will heal, but my prayers will be with you during this very difficult period. She will always be “my little Marianne.”

  11. I loved Marianne. She had been my friend since Berkmar High School. We had mutual friends in common and that’s how we met. We became close. Sometimes we’d fight so it was an on/off-again friendship. But I came over sometimes and we’d hang out. She was an incredible artist and amazingly gorgeous as well as funny. Her smile lit me up, she drew pictures of me and for me and even made a painting of me she called an angel; pearlescent pastel colors and white with wings, faceless. I never fail to think about her every year especially around the same month she passed. Sometimes I wish we had made up in March the same year she passed since we had fought and stopped talking to each other. Then when she passed a mutual friend from school told me what happened. I miss her so much.
