So sorry to hear the loss of your loved one.Always a beautiful smile and kind words to say whenever I saw Marilyn,exhibited the type of neighbor anyone would love to have. I recall receiving a gift from her when I moved to my new residence. I will truly remember the person she was.May God comfort and strengthen each and everyone of you during this time and the days ahead in your lives.

I will miss her warm smile and quiet, gentle soft spoken nature. When she spoke to me, I felt I was the only one in the room. I will surely miss my cousin Marilyn. I take comfort in knowing that her suffering has ended. But most importantly I truly believe she has EARNED her right to be standing beside her maker in Heaven. Rest in Peace Marilyn.
