    For the Love of M your infectious laughter brought so much joy and happiness, your love is never ending, our time together so precious and not enough, I miss you with all my heart, I know you are there and will always be by my side. You touched every heart who met you. You were an inspiration to so many. I give this gift so one day a heart can feel relief and joy and we can remember our fabulous, beautiful, loving M. You weren't just my sister, you were my friend, and the one who taught me love is important and that I was worthy of it. Thank you Tara for this wonderful opportunity. Jodi

    In loving memory of Marilee this donation is given in Addy and Liam’s names. A place where they can run and play and sit and rest. A gathering spot where fond memories can be shared and her remembrance embraced. A garden where Gramma Em’s will grow in their hearts and her love for them be ever present. The Art of Life.

    Donating not because I knew Marilee personally but because my dear friend, Michelle McGhee, was also a dear friend of Marilee's. I have enjoyed stories Michelle has shared with me over the years of the sweet times she shared with Marilee. Lisa Barnes

    Thank you Tara for doing this to help honor Marilee! I have to admit, I was just scrolling down my Facebook pages, and all of a sudden I saw her stunning blue eyes and her beautiful red hair and it caused me to catch my breath. I miss her so much!!! Love to all of you and to everyone who participates in this! I can't wait to go sit on her bench and reflect on what a wonderful, fun-filled, person she was!

About Team Em's (Marilee Etheridge)

Our mission is to raise funds to purchase a bench in honor of Marilee.  Our hope is that this bench will provide all a place for quiet reflection and healing as we remember Marilee.  As a speech-language pathologist, she spent her life dedicated to helping the elderly and children. The Art of Life Garden will feature areas for reflection and natural playscapes for children, so naturally we feel this will be a wonderful opportunity to honor Marilee.  

Marilee passed from this world due to complications of ocular melanoma. During her fight, she remained a source of strength and love to us all.  No matter what her future held, she always remembered to embrace each moment. 

Having a bench in her honor will allow her to continue giving – a quiet bench for reflection for all those affected by cancer to be able to find hope and remember to enjoy life today.  

We appreciate your generosity in honor of Em's.
