Marian, I just found out you are no longer with us. I am so very sorry I didn't go see you prior to your passing. Please forgive me, but I know the loss is mine. I will never forget your beautiful smile and compassionate nature. Remember the meals we shared and the long talks regarding church doctrine? Now that the veil has been lifted your knowledge is complete. I love you and miss you terribly my dear friend. You will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you so much for your friendship!
Much Love, Cristi Romero

Marian always had a way of making me feel like I was special, not just another healthcare worker. She truly cared for everyone around her and I believe I got more out of our visits together than she did. I will miss her greatly.

I'm honored to have worked with Miss Marian when she was a Board member of her Home Owners Association. I remember her fiesty spirit balanced with a unique gentleness along with her great sense of humor. I was able to keep tabs on her through a mutual friend. While I'm saddened to hear of her passing, I smile and chuckle when I recall the experiences we shared together. Hopefully the great memories she left all of us with will bring a smile to our face and peace to our heart whenever we fondly remember Miss Marian.

Marian was such a sweet spirit. Out of all of my other patients, there was something special about her. Over the last year and a half we have become great friends and she will be dearly missed. Until next time Marian. We love you so much!
