Andy, Sissy and family - I am so very sorry to hear of Marian's passing. What a wonderful lady she was - always so full of life and always putting her family first! You will have so many wonderful memories to cherish in the years to come and I pray that it brings you all a sense of peace. Heaven certainly gained an Angel!
You are all in my heart, my thoughts and my prayers.
Love, Suzanne
