My Aunt Marianne had the most beautiful and caring heart, Aunt Marianne and Uncle Gene took me in there home when I was 8 years olds. Aunt Marianne show me what a real family was about and taught me how to do stuff and take care of myself. I am so grateful that I had my Aunt Marianne, Aunt Marianne was more as a mom to me. We love you and miss you Aunt Marianne. I will see you in Heaven. Love Mary Ann & Sonny
