    Ivamarie was the smartest, kindest most caring person I have ever known. As the President of our condo Board of Trustees for a number of years she guided our complex to be one of the best, if not THE best in town. On a personal level she was a true friend that I could go to and get “grounded” advice/suggestions. I will miss you my friend. Thank you

    Now the universe is holding its breath, waiting for something.
    For now, the trees do not sway,
    the clouds in the sky to do not float by,

    We will love you forever, our sweet Ivamarie.
