Today I want to write about the death of Maryln Schwartz. Maryln died last Thursday in Dallas. Her book, A Southern Belle Primer, was a New York Times Best Seller and she was seen on many TV programs including Good Morning America, The Joan Rivers Show and Oprah as she spoke with great fun, wit and humor about being a Southerner and what makes someone a "Southern Belle."
She was a featured columnist with the Dallas Morning News for many years. Maryln's sharp sense of humor, always with a wink and a smile, captured the hearts of all who knew her, or knew her writing. She always had her finger on the pulse of what people were talking about.
There's a really lovely write up in her home town newspaper the Mobile Press-Register, you can read it here.
Maryln, bless your heart, you are already missed.
