Marion was extremely protective and cared deeply for family, friends and neighbors he loved. He was intimately acquainted with pain and beauty, love and loss, good food and simple acts of kindness. We celebrate in Marion the gifts that make each of us special: “not star power, not intellectual prowess, but the ineffable mystery and extraordinary beauty of the simple human heart.” By
