Marion exuded love, compassion and strength. She was unbelievable with the gift of time. No matter how busy, she always stopped to truly listen and be a friend. Her laughter was so contagious and great for one’s soul. She will be missed by so many, but at the same time welcomed by all the angels in heaven.
Love from Scott and Tiffi
