So sorry to hear of Marion’s passing. I remember fondly of the times I was able to visit with her when she was in Iowa. Our deepest condolences to the whole family. Larry and Donna Milner.

Cecelia and I took our mothers to Mardi Gras one year. We went to a parade and I told Hardy how people jump up and down to catch beads. She sat down and said, ‘If they want me to catch beads, they can just throw them to me.’ First float by through some in her lap. From then on, she was jumping up and down like the rest of us. I loved that lady.
