    As a kid I loved staying with Grandmom Ward (Mom Mom) Aunt Ginny and Aunt Mabel. My cousin Mike was just down the road and I spent most of the time at his house. Uncle Bud and Aunt Marian were always so kind and giving. Great memories of them both; Aunt Marian always had a smile and made me feel welcome. I didn’t know she had been so sick but know she is now relieved of her suffering and rejoicing with her loved ones.

    I am so sorry for your loss but I can’t help but be glad she has no more pain.
    She was a wonderful friend and sister in the Lord. She was such a fun loving person and I will miss her but we will see her again.
