Always kind and gentle. May she be a blessed memory to all who loved her and had the pleasure of having her in their lives as we did for so many years. Thanks for always smiling and loving my children as if they were her own grandchildren.
My memories of Marion include many a pool party at the Wallace’s. She was always the life of the party with her sweet smile and pleasant laughter. Her legacy will live on in her wonderful children and grand children. Sending prayers, hugs and love to you all as you begin this journey without her. May the happy memories you share take over as time passes, and lessen the heartache you are all feeling at this time.
