Aunt Marion was always fun to be with and my childhood memories of parties at Aunt Clara's always include my Mom and Aunt Marion sitting together smiling and laughing. She will always be remembered as someone who cared and loved her family with all of her heart. Her legacy of love continues as each of us remember special stories about her. I'm sending a heartfelt hug to all of you and prayers for healing. I am so grateful that I got to see her at your house and enjoy her company that afternoon. A treasured memory for sure...xo
