I loved Marianne very much. I’m glad she lived such a long life. Always classy! She made my 18 years at Holy Cross very enjoyable. What a friend. I will always have beautiful thoughts about her. I’m sorry I heard about her passing so late. God Bless her family.

Dear Melody and family,
The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will. Romans 8:26-27.
With much love for you all,
Gwen Walton
