Marley-Rei was a bubbly, sweet, and loving daughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend. She loved being active whether it be dancing, playing volleyball, soccer, softball, basketball, running track, horseback riding and hanging with her friends. She loved Goshen so much that she wanted to be a cowgirl so bad. She gave love to everyone she came in contact with and always had a smile on her face. Although her time here on earth was short, she touched so many lives and was loved deeply by all who had the opportunity to meet her.

"You were my baby sister and my only sister. I could complain to you about anything, even when half the time you didn't want to hear, you were always there. Even though we would butt heads almost all the time, I knew you still loved almost all the time! I knew you still loved me and I still loved you 'cause we'd be friends again only seconds later. Your heart was always in the right place. You always had good intentions. If I was ever in the wrong, you'd always be the one to tell me. I miss you lil' sis. I was so excited to watch you live the rest of your life, a little bundle of joy. Things will never be the same. I just wish you were here. But I know you're with us right now watching over us." ~ Emery-Lei Tarango
"You were always on my side when I made fun of Mahina, called out people online for cheating, and for when I argued about how beef jerky was superior to everything else food related. I do regret not spending more time with you or being nicer when you were around. When most of all the family went hiking or to a park, we would have our differences but you were always ready to fight if anybody messed you are with us. Overall, you were a great sister and I know that you are watching over us." ~ Kalani-Rob Tarango
"I loved you, even though sometimes you were a brat to me. You always knew what to say to make me feel better. You were so kind and the best." ~ Haukea-Nanu Tarango
