My condolences to Marlene's family. I met Marlene many years ago when we would spend weekends in New York with our mutual friend Maryann Wordell. A group of us would take the train or bus or drive there and enjoy a whole weekend of "Arts and Culture"
Marlene was a wonderful woman and nurse. A loyal friend and had a heart of gold, I was so very sad to read of her passing, I will miss her.
