    Terry and I will miss Marian very much as a family member and friend…and not least of all, as a wonderful mother-in-law to our daughter Kim. We have very fond memories of Marian dancing at our wedding in Mexico last year.

    Nothing beautiful in this world
    is ever really lost…because all precious things live on in memory….
    forever…..with love, Margaret and Terry
