What a great friend. He will be missed.

It was an honor to have been around an iconic man who knew how to be friends with anyone. I was blessed to have been your teammate. I never had to worry about throwing the ball to 1st base, you always made me look good. You taught me how to relax at the plate, and always took time to talk with me about things that mattered. I love you, Marion. Rest In Peace brother.

So sorry to hear this news. Marion, you and your wonderful smile will be missed. I feel privileged to have competed with and against you. All I can say is I feel sorry for whoever plays first base when you get your first softball at bat in Heaven. RIP my friend.
