I will miss my aunt. She was the sweetest, kindhearted person you would ever want to meet. She was pure southern charm. I wish I could have said goodbye.

Marion Richardson McSweeney
June 3, 1941 -- June 13, 2018

We all were in school together, the class of 1959 at the Collegiate School for Girls on Monument Avenue, and Marion was the beautiful one. She was beautiful, well, she was drop-dead gorgeous on the surface, but she was beautiful within as well. She never said a mean word about anyone. She was infinitely kind. I can still hear her laugh. It would bubble up from somewhere deep inside and burst forth to delight us. Her smile would break your heart, it was so genuine.

After we all went our separate ways, Marion was an airline hostess for a while and then married and had two children, a son and a daughter. The marriage ended while the children were still young. I know that Marion was proud of her children and her grandchildren. I know that she loved them and that she missed seeing them.

I was dismayed in recent years to see the decline in her health and in her resources and in the care she received. I never heard her complain.

We are saddened by this loss of one of our number. May we all be grateful for the love and support of our nearest and dearest, for the community we share among ourselves and with others.

For the friendships that endure from the past, may we be truly thankful.

Marion, you were a special lady and we are sorry you are gone.

It was my privilege to get to know Marion in a Bible Study we attended together. It was my joy to be her advocate the past several years. Although her health was declining, her spirit and faith remained strong. She will always hold a very special place in my heart and I will miss her very much. May God hold close and comfort all who grieve.

Marion you walked across my heart the first tim3 I met you some forty six years ago. I knew the moment we met that we were going to be good friends . We talked and talked and I realized we had many things in common. I thought you were so beautiful and sweet and knew about your two very young children . We spent the most precious time two people can share , the raising of our children being the best of friends, what security to have had you to do all th fun things we did together with the children. . You were such a loyal and true friend. You loved life and nature and all creatures great and small and were such a wonderful mother to Katy and John. I will never stop loving you and Katy and John your picture I painted of you as a child is in my living room. Friends like we were happen so rarely in life , I will never for get you , love you forever and Katy and John I am always with you and will never forget your childhood with me Kemp and Bryan.
