From: Amber Santos

Dear Nancy, Ian, Ken and Family,
I am sending my deepest sentiments in your time of loss. I’m so grateful for having known Marion, or as I knew her as a teen, “Mrs.Muth.” I remember many, many lunchtime hours from LVR at your home, eating lunch and watching Disney in your basement. Marion always had the kindest smile and loveliest sense of humor. Your home was a warm and safe place for me as a youth. Thank -you for that. Marion will be eternally missed. May her next phase be filled with light. with love, Amber

From: Denise and Brian Henshaw
Relation: Family friend and colleague

Dear Ken, Ian, David and Nancy even though we can’t be there we still share you sorrow and send our condolences.
