We loved you so much Marion. We had hoped to celebrate your 100th birthday with you. However the Lord Jesus had a better idea. You are now dancing the street of gold with Denis and Rhys. Our Lord is smiling. You were a fantastic Senior Soldier in The Salvation Army. You were the finest example of a Christian woman, wife, mother, grandmother and friend anyone could know.

I know I did not know you for a long time. And I really just don't know what to say because I am only 11. But you always made me want to know god more. And I loved that grammie and grampie and mommy said you were always so cheerful sometimes even though you were 99. I really even wanted those glasses you wore all the time. I would see a lot of photos in photo books of you and want to be there. I wish I knew you better. I knew you wanted to go up with jesus and your son, and Denis. You will always be someone I look up to even when I get older.

Grandma Marion, you loved all!
You loved people right where they were not judging them or excepting them to change, only praying for them to grow in grace
You loved the men in the program at church.
You loved the children in the church.
Your love committed love for your husband showed me what real love is.
Your faith in all things even till your last difficult days showed me what holiness is.
Your testimonies of your past taught me about about God’s faithfulness in you
You gave me so much wisdom and laughter!
If I am sad it is only because this world needs more joy that people like you have!
But I celebrate that you are with you Savior, dancing with your tambourine! Love you

You always referred to yourself as "the little girl from River st." when you spoke of the many obstacles that you overcame in life. I am eternally grateful that you imbued that spirit and grit in me, and whenever I overcome a difficult obstacle in my life I whisper to myself, not bad for a little girl from River st. You will live on in my heart and your tireless strength and belief in me will always buoy my resolve.It was a long road for you and I am honored you shared it with me. I love you, Nana.

I spoke to you everyday on my home from school. I’m Little did I know that day when I invited you to ‘check out our church’ that it would lead to you not only coming but becoming apart of our family as well.

You went to extraordinary lengths to encourage people and your kindness was boundless. Thank You for being an example example of Christ to me and so many others.
