Marilyn was a special person. I only was able to get to know her in the last year of her life. She loved to tell me stories of scrabble games with Marv, grocery shopping and her travels with camping. She was a simple and God loving person. May you be comforted in the knowledge she has lived the good life and now is resting peacefully in heaven.
