Marian cared for every one she met, whether recent or over the course of her life. She always showed a personal interest in me for which I find it hard to do. Her husband Jack was so much fun in both an intellectual and humorous way. I will miss them both. My brother Robert was quite blessed to marry into such a caring family.

Marian was my first post graduate supervisor for 6 years during my time at TMH in Houston. An amazing lady who has entered my thoughts and prayers many times over the last 20 years or so. May she rest in peace. Please accept my condolences.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Aunt Marian was a wonderful, wonderful woman. I know that she will be greatly missed. I'm very sorry that I won't be able to be at the service.

With much love,
