    Ed, Janet & Suzy — you have our deepest sympathies, our thoughts and prayers are with you through this. So sorry for your loss, our loss! Although I’ve been away for many years now, it feels like only yesterday that I was there with you all. I spent a considerable amount of my childhood under her watchful eye and those memories will be forever cherished. We pray for peace in your hearts now, knowing your mom and my Auntie Marion is in Gods loving embrace.

    So many loving memories of Marion, she was another Mother to my brothers & I, especially when my Mother was ill. We had such good conversations, she helped me through the difficult times. She was a beautiful, thoughtful, kindhearted woman both inside and out. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Prayers to you and all the grand children. Sonny you were like her brother and I’m sorry for your loss. God bless you all.

    You will always be Aunt Marion to me. From the first time your nephew Joey brought me to Woburn you embraced me as family immediately. You not only made me welcomed, you you made my daughter Caresse just as welcomed.

    Although my husband passed you never forgot me. Each year I looked forward to your Christmas card and you never failed me.

    My heart aches for your loved ones because I know how hard this is for them. They are truly a reflection of the beautiful mother who brought them into this world.

    I pray for the repose of your soul and I know you shall have everlasting peace.

    God Bless You All, Love Cousin Catherine Nochella
