Judy, heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Your mom was a special person and I was honored to have known her. The fondest memory of Marion was when we went mall shopping together with your mom, your daughter, Jamie and granddaughter. You and I hijacked her wheelchair and went racing around. Your mom told us how goofy we were.That was a very good day, full of laughter and lighthearted humor.

Marion is now gently in the realm of heaven. God bless.
