Dear Sweet Marian Pure, a beautiful woman with exquisite blue eyes and a quick smile. It has been such a blessing to be part of her life especially these last few year when birthday celebrations, church teas, and family get togethers were all on the docket. She will be missed. When I see a red rose bush blossoming or smell the fragrance of roses, I know Aunt Marian is close .
