    I am so sorry to hear about Marina’s passing. She was a wonderful woman with a great heart, spirit, and sense of humor. My first acupuncture was with her and she treated many times, relieving pain and making me laugh. She loved her family very much. Rest in peace, Marina!

    Dear Yuri and Gene,
    we know that no words can help ease the pain and loss that you are feeling right now. The fact that we will not be able to speak to our dearest friend Marina and to see her smile is enough to make us feel vulnerable and helpless. Life would never be the same without Marina. Someone so special can never be forgotten. Любим, скорбим вместе с вами.
    Love,Yelena and Simon Gerovich

    Please know that I’m praying for your strength at this time. Though I met Marina only once, her strength, intelligence and love of family resonated with me and I instantly knew why your eyes lit up when you spoke of her. I pray you’ll take comfort in all your memories of her.

    Greatest Sympathy, Simone
