Sweet, sweet Marian. She was loved and will be missed. Her smile could light up a room. And she made the best biscotti in the world. Rest in peace

Cousin Marian and I often discussed our childhood in Brooklyn. We were more than just cousins living in a two family house . She and her lovely sister Betty played piano, sang songs, put on amateur shows for churches, which they took me to see, but fondest memories were listening to her sing and play those songs on piano, (some of which she wrote) with her sister Betty. They are very talented sisters . I spent many hours in their parlor watching them play their duets, which got me to appreciate pop and classical music. Marian was a fantastic cook as well. There are so many other nice things to say about her. Even though we were on opposite sides of the USA,we always had such nice phone conversations. Marian, Love You, and miss you already Until we meet again in heaven. Cousin Liz and Cousin Vinny
