Letter: Marie Toole a model we should strive for

To the editor:

I was pleased to open my paper April 11 and see the photo of Marie Toole celebrating her 102nd birthday, and being honored with the Boston Post Cane. I, along with others who work at CATWALK (the women's resale shop benefiting the Berkshire Humane Society), have had the pleasure and privilege of spending time with Marie during her visits to our shop. Her positive attitude, sharp mind, and graciousness are a model for which we all should strive regardless of our age. Marie's visits are a day-brightener and always leave us smiling.

Thank you, Marie, for being such an inspiration.

And belated Happy Birthday!

Melissa Bye,
