Not sure what to say?

Thanks God there were people like Marion during WW2. She is rightly honored for having saved 150 Jewish children, but in fact how many of their descedentes are alive today thanks to her? I bet more than a thousand!!.
Ester Lewi-Cabral, Jewish, whose maternal grandmother family in Poland were not lucky to meet a Marion Pritchard in their lives

I never knew you, but have read about you. I grew up in Seattle surrounded by Dads who fought in WWII, Dutch neighbors who had lived in Nazi occupied Holland; Jews who had survived the camps; and German neighbors who, as innocent children, had been drafted into the Nazi's youth corps. (It was interesting...most of the Dad's worked for Boeing.) I heard many stories. Words cannot express what we owe you for your defiant courage and selfless acts. Just thinking of what you did inspires me...

I am writing a "Radio Stage" play about the heroic Marion Prichard. I have personal letters from her. I would like to DONATE my play so that it may be performed to inspire others to follow in Marion's courageous footsteps. How may I contact family and friends? I want to honor her memory.

God bless you and help you safe in his arms

This woman was a very brave woman who helped many people. My sincere condolences for your loss. Psalms 29:11 says that God will give you strength during this hard time.

My deepest sympathies to the Pritchard family for the loss of Marion. May God's Word strengthen you during this difficult time. (Isa. 41:10,13)
