I "met" Marilyn by phone at the Hyannis Public Library when she called to request some books. I always enjoyed these calls and started referring to Marilyn as my telephone friend.
She was in rehab at one point and l called once or twice. Marilyn always brought a smile to my face during these conversations, and l don't know which of us enjoyed the calls more!
I had the opportunity to meet her in person once, and Marilyn looked as I'd pictured her, from hearing her voice.
I will miss these calls.
