Marion was our first cousin. His father Arlis and my Mother Gertrude were brother and sister. He and my older brother were exactly one month apart in age, Marion being the oldest. We saw Marion and Felicia fairly often when they visited Kim at Dauphin Island. Marion was a pallbearer for my Mother in 2010. He'd called me about 2 months ago, just to see how we were doing. His and Felicia's death were a shock to all. His gentle voice and her friendship will be greatly missed. We loved you both.

I worked with "Shadrack" at Mead and enjoyed him immensely. He was an awesome individual, who reached out to everyone he met. He will be greatly missed by all. Also worked with Felecia. This is such a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Nell

If I have any regrets,it is that I never made the effort to spend more time as we
grew older to keep in touch with my cousins.I always liked Marion and his brothers also.I just hate that we drifted apart.Jesus,hold him tight,and we will have eternity to make up for lost time.Amen
