    Janet and Tony, I was very sorry to see Marion’s obituary in today’s paper. I was the one who went with Marion the same time you were there at her vacation condo. Marion and I had traveled to New Orleans to see her school friend during Mardi Gras. We always had lunch at Main St Cafe when she was in town. I considered her a very good friend, I loved her and will miss her. She was a wonderful person. We talked about her early years. She went through some very rough years. Marion is a real survivor, courageous, and created an exemplary charming lady for herself. She is real proof that we create our lives.
    Prayers and Blessings to the family,
