  • Dear Family
    So sorry to hear of Marion’s passing. She was a special person. Love and prayers to you all.

  • When I look back at all the people, I’ve met in my life there isn’t another person I can think of that was more genuinely nice than Marion. She was the best friend to my mother as well as many more.
