I am so very very sad!! Marianne was one of the best people I ever knew. Always positive, always up beat! We collaborated on many songs over the past 30 + years. She believed in me as a musician more than I believed in myself!! I watched her life evolve and always felt like she was at peace with herself. God blessed us with Marianne and I was lucky to be part of her life!!! May your soul be at peace beautiful! I will miss you!

It was an absolute pleasure taking care of Marianne, even if it was only for a short time. Sometimes patients touch my heart like no other ones, and your mother was one of those amazing spririts. She will never be forgotten.

My condolences to the Speiser families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Marianne. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering. For more encouraging thoughts, please visit
