There was something so unique about Marjorie. She was truly a fighter and one of, if not the strongest women I have ever known.

I love you and miss you Marjorie and even though you can't be here with us any longer, our memories of you will never die.

I have two wonderful, vivid memories of Marjorie. One occurred about 7 years ago on a visit to her home in Sudbury. I don't remember the content of our conversation, but I DO remember that our long and lovey discussion took place in the middle of her driveway with the two of us lying on our backs in the sun. The neighbors might have wondered what we were doing but it was a great spontaneous moment. My other memory was an event last March. Marjorie came up to Maine to visit Bill and I joined them. She and I hiked to the top of the Settlement Quarry to look at the gorgeous view. She beat me to the top! I will miss you Marjorie, and thank you for believing so strongly in my relationship with Bill. I will love your brother always.

It is so difficult to get my head around Marjorie not being here.
I was with her those last few weeks and I am glad for that.
Marjory was a special person. We never had a disagreement. We always got along. I don't think that many brothers or sisters can say that, and what a blessing she was to her family and friends.
Always up beat and fun to be with good sense of humor.
Dedicated to her children always.
And such a love for Nancy her sister that I hope that if there is a heaven that they are there together now.
A short story: Strange as it may seem...a cardinal was outside Nancy's window before her death and such is the case with Marjorie as well. Don't know what to make of that but very unusual for sure.
I will miss my sister!

I'll never forget Marjorie's laugh. I'm glad I got to be a source of humor in her life and a good friend to her and her sons.

Marjorie had a glow that was God given... She was easy to be around. I remember walking with her one night - just a simple walk around the block, but with Marjorie and her wonderment it became a delightful adventure. She would notice the moonlights reflection or say something like" i wonder what those people who live in that house are like- do you think they have kids, what are they watching on t.v. right now " she would catch you unaware because at times she seemed simple minded yet she could see things or say things that made you stop in your tracks... of course she would often cast it off fancily with her dry sense of humor. She was always up for having fun and doing something to be different. We grew up together as kids playing in dirt, as friends going through changes, as first couzins in a loving fun extended family, and in my heart Marjorie was really... my first love.

I will never forget Marjorie's fun and loving spirit. She always brightened up a room with lots of laughter. No matter what horrible events were happening in her life, she always saw the glass as half-full, and appreciated even the littlest things in life that are usually taken for granted, and she never wiped that contagioous smile off her face. I remember listening to the soundtrack from the musical "Rent" in the car. marjorie, my mom, melanie, and i all sang to every song together with tons of energy, never missing a beat or a lyric. It was so much fun, and I'll never forget it. I love you and miss you. Bye Marjor-eye!

With fond memories of a happier time and my most sincere condolences to her family. I was only a cousin in-law but I still remember.

I have many great memories of my cousin Marjorie, but her carefree attitude is what has had the greatest impact on me. She had her share of things to worry about, but I never saw her worry.

I remember helping her cater a Bar Mitzvah, and realizing that we had forgotten to turn on the oven to warm up the food. I don't think that bothered her a bit. Somehow we still managed to please the crowd, and I ended up with a lot of leftovers to bring back to college because the cold quiche never got served!

I can't think of anything to say about Manna other than she was always a source of laughter and warmth, oh yeah, and a great cook! She knew that in all the complexities of our lives we can find joy and humor in the simple pleasures. I will always miss her.

The day I last saw my cousin Marjorie, we took a short but thrilling walk around her hospice. She took predictable interest in the interior design of the common areas, the artwork on the walls, and, of course, the kitchen. I even remember deluding myself for a short while afterwards into thinking that maybe this wasn’t really the end, that maybe, just maybe, Marjorie would pull another rabbit from her hat and cheat death for a few more months...

Wishful thinking, I now know, but the truth is I couldn’t then and I can’t now imagine a world without Marjorie. I love you, my cousin and my friend, more than I ever told you and more than you can ever imagine. Life without you will never be the same.

It was a pleasure and a privilege to know Marjorie. I admired her courage. As a cancer survivor myself I looked up to her as a role model and an inspiration.

i've had a lot of different kinds of memories of my mom. Their have been good, funny, exciting, and even sad and angry ones. But one memory that i will never forget is how hard she worked to make me and my brother's life as best as possible. She was an amazing person. I will never forget her. I am angry and sad that she had to go, but also happy that she didn't have to be in pain any more.
