So sorry to hear of Marion's passing. I have many warm memories of my time at the Herald News, but Marion's presence at the desk next to me is my favorite. She was warm but dignified, and a beloved role model to all of her co-workers. She will be deeply missed.
Ruth, Martha, Tom, Mr Flanigan and family,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We know what a beautiful life your parents shared and how much love your mom brought to your family. We hope that all the wonderful memories of your mom will be a comfort to you. She was such a special, welcoming person who respected everyone's thoughts and made us all feel valued--even as teenagers. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
With our deepest sympathy and love,
My sincere condolences to Mr. Flanigan, Martha, Ruth, Tom, spouses, and children. Strange coincidence that I was just looking at the 1976 Chief on classmates.com and saw Tom's picture the night before I saw this. I have many great memories of the family and the fun we had in the neighborhood. One that stands out was hiking to "Mystery Falls" - part of Lewin Brook - with Tom and his parents and my brother, Matt. I agree with Joe - great picture of a wonderful woman with a beautiful smile. Wishing you all the best.
My condolences to the family of Marion Hoyt Flanigan. Although I never met Mrs. Flanigan, there is no doubt that I have seen the best of her character in son, Tom--a friend for close to twenty-three years--and the best of her intellect and sentiment in her poems, A Pale Cast of Thought. May good memories of her sustain all family and friends in the days to come.
Paul, Martha, Ruth, and Tommy.
So sorry for your loss. I will always be grateful to your Mom for the opportunities she extended to my sister Arleen and me to attend many art activities putting up with our many visits to your home. She has a special place in my heart. Love Barbara
