My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Marian. I met her threw my mom Gloria, who would go clean for her and help her with groceries.. She then asked if My mom Knew someone to type up her Christmas letters for her my mom asked me. I had the pleasure the last cpl years calling her to talk to her about what she wanted to say in those thought fullness letters for her family and what she had done over the summer. My mom and I was sadden to know she had passed but now may her soul rest in peace and God Bless..

Marian was such a dear lady. She would have our family over for supper when I was a child and I remember how delicious her meals were. She had a contagious laugh that I will always remember. May you rest in peace Marian. Thinking of J.P. and Holly and family.
