I did not know Marian well. She had been my mother-in-law's roommate at Regent for the last two years. She was kind and polite. The Knoff family wish to extend our condolences to the family and tell you how much we and our parents enjoyed the delightful "holidays" tree in their room.
May Marian Rest in Peace. She lived a long and especially eventful life! Many people may never experience all the earthly and American events that your mother experienced. What wisdom has passed with her we shall miss!
