    To the Cahlik family

    It is with sadness that I learned about the passing of Marion. My mother Aline English (nee Lewis) was Marion's cousin. I know Aline was very fond of Marion and that they kept up a correspondence for a long, long while. It was a pleasure to meet Marion and Bill when they visited the UK on holiday some years back.

    Yesterday I found a postcard from Marion in a box I was sorting through, dated 11 September 1984, which prompted me to think of her and so to contact you.

    I send the family my belated condolences.

    In sympathy,

    Rosie (Rosemary) Ritchie

    Marion was a kind and considerate mother-in-law. She chose a simple life and lived it her way. She persevered through many hardships in life, but didn’t let it turn her bitter..
