Pleasant visits

I am a eucharist minister for Mt. Zion Church and would visit with Marian every 3 months. She was always very pleasant and gracious and had a good outlook on life. I will miss going to visit her and giving her communion. She would talk about all the things her daughter would do for her and tell us about her grand daughter, of whom she was obviously very proud. She was a good person and I'm sure she is peaceful in the arms of Jesus. Sue S.
