A lovely tribute to your friend. Would you consider leaving out the first three lines and beginning with "Marion is an ordinary..."?
I agree as you tell the story so well here about Marion, we see the definition clearly. You show her with the insight to see into the heart of problems and your descriptions are so clear you can skip the definition. I like Marion and have my own Marion that I adore too!
This different, but good.
This is very different, but good
beautiful praise for your dear friend.
You make me want to be Marion. I've been blessed to know a Marion, too and the qualities you described can not be acquired simply by attending universities. You can end up an educated idiot. Thank you for reminding us of what qualities are really significant.
You are fortunate to have such a friend as Marion. Your testimony of her clearly expresses how you feel about her. I too would like and hope to be a Marion to someone, "a friend that sticketh closer than a brother".
