Real Change lost a family member. Vendor Marguerite Morrisseau passed away on Dec. 23, 2016.
Here is what one of our vendors thought of her: When I was homeless, I would never have thought to meet such a person. Marguerite is brassy and classy at the same time, someone who would take me in and treat me like I am her daughter and push me so hard to get off the streets. For her, I am truly grateful and always will be for the rest of my life.
I feel this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt is perfect to describe my friendship with Marguerite: “Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.” Goodbye, my dear friend. You will always be an angel on my shoulder.
