    Today I pause to remember the life of a remarkable colleague and friend. Marion's kind demeanor, gracious ways and his contributions to funeral service will not soon be forgotten. Marion was a remarkable man, and leaves behind a remarkable legacy. May he rest in peace.

    The world lost another beautiful soul. I've known this man my entire life. He had the best smile and gave the best hugs. His name was Marion Graham. He was my God-Father. He had a laugh like no other! I can't explain it. It was sweet and high pitched and it made you want to laugh too. I learned what charisma was from watching him in action. He had swag before swag was a thing! It was like he had a twinkle in his eye. You wanted to know what he was thinking! You wanted to hear what he had to say! Most of my life, he was a man of means. I rarely saw him dressed down. His business required suits and that's what I usually saw him in. My Uncle Marion could wear a suit! I probably gained my appreciation for a man in suit because of him. There will never be anyone like my Uncle Marion. He made everyone feel special. He was one of a kind. My Uncle Marion has gone home now. I hope he and daddy have a drink and reminisce about the good old days. Rest Uncle Marion ~ you deserve it. I love you and I always will.

    Family ties that run deep, you are all truly special. So many fond memories of each of you will forever dwell in my heart. My prayers for comfort and strength are constant... Always remember memories are for a lifetime. Hold on to that and let those memories conjure soft smiles and knowing Mr. Marion, ongoing laughter... He definitely brought many smiles and much laughter to all that knew him. I am forever grateful for the kindness and love the Graham Family has always extended to the Dailey Family. Truly Love You Forever, Tonya

    We deeply feel for what you and the family are going through. At times, there isn't much that can soothe the pain this grief brings, but you may find some comfort in the words of Psalms 9:9 which reads: "Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress." Yes, our Loving God can help if we allow him to (1John 5:14). He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth, when it is restored to a Paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11,29). No, not just a dream, but for a certainty he will do it, for Isaiah 55:11 shows us that everything he says, he accomplishes without fail. You can find out more online at JW.ORG
