When we think of the great women of the world we often think of people like Eleanor Roosevelt, Marie Curie, Harriett Tubman, etc. And indeed these women were great. But we often fail to see the great women who are right in front of us. My beloved aunt, Marion Hazel Belding Ruhman Crawford, was truly a great woman. She lived as an embodiment of what it means to be a great woman. Kind beyond measure, infinitely loving, a wonderful caregiver, a true Child of God. I had never heard Marion say a bad word about anyone. In fact, she was so gracious and considerate of everyone. In our family, she was indeed the matriarch, even though my grandmother, Alice Belding, the elder sister was a wonderful woman, Marion took on the role of matriarch and shepherded our family with amazing grace, love, kindness, and mercy. She is a major influence in my life, and indeed one of the greatest reasons I have lived a happy, fulfilling life. She always believed in the people she loved, and took the time to let you know you were important to her. She told me many times in my life that I was one of three special guys in her life... My cousin Keith, her son, my cousin Mark, her nephew, and myself. To even be included in the same sentence with these great men is an honor, and my aunt Marion truly believed I belonged in the same class as them. She has given me strength, love, and encouragement throughout my life. She was a true believer in Jesus Christ and proclaimed Him as her Savior. I am blessed by being her nephew and knowing this astonishing, amazing woman. Truly, there has never been anyone like her.
May God Bless you forever Mare, I love you with all my heart.
