Wish we had met sooner , so I could have known and loved you longer...
You were as good, if not better, than a mom to me .
Knowing you was an honor.

RIP my friend ....
Love, Serena

In the mid 1970s my mom was a paper girl for the Houston Cronicle and threw the paper in West University. I accompanied her many times to help her roll papers or bag them if it was raining. Now, getting to go with her to throw the paper was fun, but not the kind of fun Marion had. Mom would yell, “THROW!” and on command I’d get to throw the paper through the car window either near the sidewalk or driveway of the yard as I had been instructed, so it was easy and convenient for the customer to find and pick up. There were other rules like throwing it in such a way that it didn’t skid and tear the paper up and making sure it got in the yard not in the street. On one occasion Marion went with my mom to throw the paper. I’m pretty sure Marion got the same instructions I did, but when mom said, “THROW!” Marion tried her best to throw the paper up in a tree, in the bushes, or any other place that was most inconvenient for the customer to retrieve, or find for that matter. They both came back hysterical with laughter telling about where some of the papers ended up. Some were in trees. Mom said she must have been a good paper girl up to that day, since no customer sent a complaint about where their paper was found the day Marion, “helped” her throw the paper.
