Marion was a blessing to all who knew him. He cared for many members of Acworth United Methodist Church. Mr. Black would pick people up and carry them out to eat. He drove people to and from doctor's appointments. All this while caring for his wife Patsy. Marion's generous heart, clever spirit, and sly grin will be missed by many.
