My condolences to the Klutch family. I did not really know Marian and her husband, Jim, but I remember their Christmas card every year arriving at our home. My mother, Sandra West Stahl, was a childhood friend of Marian’s. They grew up together in East Wheeling, both married a Jim I think Marian was in my parents’ wedding, both had a Jamie and a Jimmy. Marian sent my mother a card every Christmas. Mom passed away in 2000, but she always remembered he dear friend, and liked to tell stories of things they did together as kids. She would have been so saddened by the tragic loss of Marian and Jim. May your family be comforted by your memories and the love they gave you. God bless.

Our hearts are filled with sorrow on the passing of our dearest friends, who we considered our Brother and Sister. There is a void space in our lives now but we will always know the love and memories they gave to us. Jim, Marian and Mindy were part of my family and will NEVER be forgotten. I know we will meet them again in Heaven and we will keep this in our hearts waiting for that day. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Klutch Family and our extreme deepest sympathy to all of you. Christine and Jim Oken
