I am sorry that I am not with you at this time. I met Marion, Victor, Douglas, George and Bobby as they sat in the pew ahead of us in the Kilsyth United Church. As well, Marian led Sunday School classes. Always with a smile.
In our community, she also gave "readings", from memory, teaching us the sounds of different languages, e.g. Irish, Scottish.
Her ability to write was amazing, always with a clarity that brought meaning to all readers. We have been blessed to know her and her family.
To a kind soul
