My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends. May you find some comfort in the promise found in Revelation 21: 3-4 and 1 Thessalonians 4:14. Knowing that there is an opportunity to be reunited with loved ones.

I'm so sorry to hear the news of Marion's passing. I loved her so much and kept in touch with her. My mother, Lois was one of her closest friends and when I came home we always visited your Mom. Kind, compassionate and loving were some of her best traits. I will miss her but I know she is at Peace now. Condolences to all the family. The pain of loss will fade with time but the fond memories will remain forever.
