I am so sorry to hear about Marian’s passing. I have so many memories throughout many years of times spent with Marian and Ron (who was my Godfather). What a joyful reunion she will have with all the 29th Street “gang” who went before her. I hope your many happy memories will bring you peace and comfort at this most difficult time.

Sorry for your loss. It is through the privilege of prayer, that the bereaved family can experience God’s love and comfort in the most intimate way. May the family find comfort, as you pour out your hearts in prayer to “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” He invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in this time of grief. 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.
