You will never meet a more lovely caring giving person as Marion. She was like a mom to all of us. She took me and the rest of Mike's friends in like a pack of wild dogs, and always took care of us. Always gave us Safe place to land. We will miss your smile and your laugh, your loving and caring way.  You always treated me like one of your own
