A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!
