Sympathies message

  1. My name is Stephen hirschauer and knew Bishop Marion very well. I’m so sorry to hear of bishop marions death. He was a great help to me while I was in Greenriver correctional complex. I received an associate degree under him as well. I wish I would have known so I could have paid my respects to him and also expressed my gratitude to his family.
    I know he is with the lord now but he will be missed here.
