I am so blessed to have known Marilyn and now so sad that she is gone. We had many good visits and I will truely miss her. She loved her family so much and so enjoyed telling me of her adventures with her daughters Carol and Jennifer. Especially when it included trips to Atlanta to see her grandchildren. The trips the three of you took meant so much to her. Now she is at peace with Walt and her family has so many wonderful memories to cherish. God bless you all.
