Marilyn & I met at Gans Ok high school we became best friends & still friends when she passed away . We spent hours on the phone that week she was re doing her flower beds and went into to full detail telling me everything she was doing . She was excited to meet my 10th grandbaby , telling me she bought her another new outfit. 2 years ago she hand delivered my birthday present beautiful diamond ring with a big beautiful orange stone & made me promise to keep it forever. I'll cherish it & our friendship forever & always .
She loved me & told me so often & of course I let her know our friendship was one of a kind! I love 💘 you Marilyn & my surprise flowers bloomed Saturday Morning same color as the Ring you bought me ...
