So much love and precious memories to last a lifetime. You are gone, but never forgotten. You live with us every day in the little moments we used to share. I love you.

I enjoyed visiting with Aunt Marion. I would take my mom to see her twice a year. They could sit and talk for hours. We would then go out for lunch. It was easy to tell that both sisters were very close. They would always reflect on their mutual interactions as kids and growing up, Aunt Marion will be sadly missed. She was my favorite aunt.

To Mark and Denise and all of your family, I'm sorry for your loss. It's wonderful that she was able to have such a long productive life and I know she loved you and that you loved her. Cherish the good memories. My thoughts are with you.

Sitting around Denise’s kitchen table without you (and Helen) will never be the same. You were a pillar of strength grandma, right up until the end. I will miss your stories and eating ice cream and sherbet with you. I hope you know how much Mark, Trevor, and I loved you. ?? Gretchen
