    So sad for the loss of Marian. Praying that the support of family and friends will sustain you. May you draw close to God in prayer and find comfort in knowing that you can throw all your burden upon God and he will give you the strength to get through this very difficult period, Psalm 55:22. My sincere condolences for your loss.
