I liked Marli. She was a beautiful person. She never had a bad word to say about anyone that I ever heard, and she had a big heart.
I will miss seeing her.

My heart goes out for her mom Katherine and her brother Jason.

  1. Marli was a warm, helping, loving person with a huge heart, a brilliant and creative mind. Marli, in her short 25 years touched an amazing number of people and is and will always be missed by so very many friends, relatives and acquaintances. I may seem a little sensitive at this time, but to find Marli\’s name under the title of "Another Death" and to have a lasting printed picture to all including the writer who didn\’t know her well simply as an addict, is like painting a picture of a rainbow in black and grey because the artist has never seen one. Would the writer, who obviously knows Marli\’s pain, and now knows a little more about his subject find it in his heart to re-write his bit of news. It simply is not how she, or anyone should be remembered.

  2. I agree with the comment posted by Vern below. To read, on your blog, of a dog\’s death as being "devastating" to its owner, and then below it a short bit on "another death" seems insensitive to say the least. Marli was an achingly beautiful, brilliant and talented woman. To chock her death up to another passing of another addict takes away from the lovely soul she was. I hope noone ever writes about your own death that way. I hope you get my point.
