Marilyn and I met when she needed a groomer for her 2 dogs. Our friendship grew and I started helping her get groceries and take the pups to the vet. She became much more than a client , she became family. She became the grandmother I didnt have anymore. We would talk for hours and she would give me very good life advice. I love her with all my heart and will miss her and the dogs dearly ! She was an amazing woman!

I met Marilyn last June. Over the year we had many good times just visiting and enjoying each other’s company. We had sweet times sitting at her table. Such a sweet lady!

She was a blessing in my life!
