Marilyn was a Junior High School friend, high School friend, then friend again when my husband and Ken were both in the Marine Corps League.

Enjoyed their company for many years after. She was a meticulous woman; perfection came easy for Marilyn. Unfortunately, we have not seen each other for a couple of years.

RIP true friend.
