I've known Marianne for a few years now - she was the manager that hired me at LOFT (where I purchase 80% of my wardrobe still to this day) during our first year of marriage and I can honestly say I've never been greeted by her with anything but a smile and abundant kindness. She is beautiful, inside and out, and is an incredible leader that values those around her. To say that it brings me joy to see how deeply loved she is by Ray + how deeply she loves Ray... that would be a huge understatement. And when I asked Ray what he thought when he met Marianne for the first time, he didn't even really need to answer. The smile on his face, the way he looks at her ...no words needed.
