Dear Family… so many memories flood my mind and tears come to my eyes and a lump to my throat but I am so thankful that the way of God just gets sweeter and sweeter and means more and more to us as we near the finish line. So grateful that Aunt Marilyn crossed that finish line victorious.
Deep love,
Mary Anderson and family

So very sorry to hear that Marilyn lost the fight but you all got to know Uncle Phil is one happy man to have her home. I will surely miss Phil and Mary very much they really did alot for me when I was young – loved them and I know that they loved me.

This is to the family my deepest sympathy and just know that I will be with you all on Saturday but my situation I just can’t it and I deeply sadden because of not being there for you all. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all.

Miss you all.

How could I ever forget Marilyn … indeed a mother in Israel to us all, taking us in anytime of the day or night …the home was a haven of rest to the soul…. those special Bible studies around the table together each morning ..then after a delicious meal she had made us custard pudding….precious memories I’ll carry with me.
HEARTFELT sympathy to you children
My love. Gloria

Thinking of you all today! Glad to have known both your parents! I know they were very special to the students at Purdue, a haven, home away from home! Many good memories of your family since our first days. Love to you all, Mervin n Becky

Glad for the day Bob and I brought Jeannette to spend a few days and we were treated to a delicious dinner and wonderful fellowship that day. Truly a memory we treasure thinking of again and again. What a heavenly fellowship we share in.
