Marilyn and I went to church together for many years. I loved doing things together and sharing stories of our lives. She will be sorely missed, yet I know she is in her happy place now as she has seen Jesus and her loved ones. Condolences to her family!

When we were young, Marilyn had a terrible temper and we used to fight like cats and dogs. Mother would go out side and cut two switches and give one to each of us - so we could switch each other. We didn't stay mad too long after we got the switches, because it was funny and we began to laugh and giggle.
