It’s hard to put into words what this entire family means to me. We lived in the same neighborhood in Snellville, went to Scouts together, experienced many great memories to this day. I am thankful that Marian has made her way to the next chapter. She told me before she died not to worry about her and she was fine. She loves her entire family dearly. I will miss Marian because she was a second mom and friend to me. She helped me though times that were so hard with a great listening ear. Sean and Byran, your mom is at the big table now with your wonderful father. I know you both are gonna miss her, but imagine how grand of a reunion is happening right now.
