I am so sorry to hear about Marion. I have many memories of her and Jack on Quincy Avenue during my childhood. My thoughts are with the Klein family.

Even though I have never met Mrs. Klein, her son, Stuart, has said many great things about her. I send my deepest sympathies to the family and friends during this time. May the Lord be with you and piece abound in all of you.
