I first came to know Marilyn in the fall of 1970, I had just graduated from high school and took my first job out of school working at Beichs,that began my long time friendship with Marilyn. I'm not sure if Clay appreciated our friendship because he thought we talked too much, he separated us by moving our desk to opposite sides of the room . Over the years we have shared so many stories with each other that I felt like I knew all of you. When I left Beichs we stayed in touch and would go out for lunch. When I saw there was an opening at Napa I told Marilyn about it and she came to work in my department. Again we shared an office together along with 2 other women and we had so much fun but eventually she went back to Beichs to help out Clay. We always marveled at the way our friendship could pick right back up even after not seeing each other for long periods of time. When Napa relocated I went to work in my husbands office and by then Clay was retired and so Marilyn ended up working part-time for me for about a year or more and our lives continued to weave in and out. On our lunch dates she was always eager to show me pictures of her grandkids and give me updates on everyone. She talked a lot about her sisters and her family. Marlyn was always kind, loving, considerate and so soft-hearted. I always called her "MerryLand." I still have both the afghans that she made for me. The last time I picked her up for lunch we stayed at the restaurant so long that in was almost dinner hour before we left. While there Ted had called to see where she was. The last thing I said to her when I took her home was, " I love you" and she told me the same. I don't know if she ever really knew how very much I appreciated her friendship but I will always count her as one of my most precious, dear friends and I will never forget her. I can still hear the sound of her voice when I think of her. Good-bye my dear friend, I know you are with God.
