The late Marion and his wife cuddled up, soaking up the affection they felt for each other and having the timeline in a swell of emotions. The first photo had them locked in an embrace, with Marion lying on his hospital bed.

Marion’s death was announced on the first of December one year after he was diagnosed with ischemic stroke.


Despite his frail health, Marion cracked a little smile for a selfie. In the last photo, the couple's hands were intertwined, giving off a warm message. Thomas wrote in her caption:


“Nothing is normal. Maybe nothing will ever be normal again. For me, it won’t. My husband is gone…”

The fashion journalist went on as she let fans know that being kind was important as she stressed that everyone had it on them. The media personality noted that love mattered the most because time would never be enough.


Thomas stated that she had decided to hold on to positivity and the priceless memories she had with her spouse as she continues being the best mom for genie little son, Miles.

Marion’s death was announced on the first of December, one year after being diagnosed with ischemic stroke. After treatment, he was able to walk with some assistance, and his wife even shared updates on his progress in May.

The late Marion was an attorney who graduated from the University of Michigan, the George Washington School of Law, and the NYU School of Law. His wife and their five-year-old son survive him.
