Dear Verburg Family,
Im so sorry to hear about Marians passing. Im sure shes enjoying heaven with her sweet husband, Rich. I met Rich & Marian at the fitness center in the basement of Hegg Hospital where they were working out as were my Mom, Berdena and I. I always looked forward to seeing them when I was home visiting Mom. Your Dad shared stories with me about him playing ball with my Dad. I so so cherish those conversations. Your Dad made me a cross which is proudly displayed in my computer room!
Your Mom invited Mom and I over to visit her. That also was fun. She gave us some homemade hangers which I still use today..
I admired and respected your parents. They were wonderful folks and will be missed.
Your family are in my prayers.
Bonnie Buma and Berdena too.

Sending hugs and love to the family during this difficult time. Aunt Marion was a very special lady. I loved to see what special things she was making and always picked up extra hangers!! Love Dan & Rachel Morren

Grandma you will be so missed. We know you so happy in heaven with grandpa and all your brothers and sisters. I am so glad I got the quilting bug from you. I will treasure all the times we shared talking and looking at quilts. I love you.
