My Aunt Marian was my favorite aunt. She always smiled and made me feel happy...a great sense of humor too. That's where Ronnie got it! We loved getting families together for dinners. Seemed like it took forever for that ride to Bartonville from Graymont, but we always knew that great food was waiting. She always set the table so beautifully with her china and crystal. She was a proud woman and raised a great family and took care of Ted too...especially when he needed her the most. What a loving family.
You know that she is having the time of her life now!!!
