I have so many memories of spending time with Marion, her brother, Rob, and sister, Jane when we were in Gloucester visiting Grandpa Sargent. I will never forget all the aunts, uncles, and cousins we spent time with during those summers. I will especially miss my email conversations with Marion, as we kept in touch with each other weekly to share our families' news and what was happening in our daily lives. Marion, wherever your spirit lands, I know you will continue to be a friend to whoever you meet.
