Mrs Sullivan what a very nice lady who was a very caring mom and her husband and her two boys I feel very fortunate to have grown up in the same neighborhood. I'll always remember mr. Sullivan seems such a kind and generous person taking John and Dan and myself to navy sea cadets.It was an experience of my life. Yes her boys were very much an asset to my brother Frank and myself having fun times together thru the years.After looking back and viewing the posted pictures of Mrs. Sullivan she must have known she was loved everyday and continues to be loved in the comfort of all of our memmories.

Paul and I wish to convey to Marlene's sons and their families our sincere condolences in the passing of Marlene. Marlene was a dear friend of mine for many years. Paul and I met her at Northwest Christian Church and over these many years I visited her and spoke with her often on the phone. She was a delightful, kind and loving lady and she had a fantastic sense of humor. I would laugh at the stories she would tell me! I enjoyed the tales of her childhood growing up in Kansas. She spoke often of her twin sister and her sons and their families. Her memory was amazing!
On one visit I had with Marlene at the independent living facility in Arlington where she lived we took Moses for a walk. Moses bolted and caught a kitten and injured it. An aide at the facility called 911 and a large fire engine showed up! Marlene was so upset with Moses and the big scene he caused!
I will always remember Marlene and the special times we had together. May God bless and sustain her loving family.
