I would to express my condolences to your family. Marilyn helped me so much getting started on my genealogy. She shared a wealth of information with me on the Eichenberg Family. We wrote back and forth many times. I really appreciated her willingness to share with me what she had collected. Rest in Peace!!! You will be missed.
