Lee and I were neighbors of Victor and Marlen in Pickwick. Such a long time ago, but still remember the sweet couple that we got to know through neighborhood outings. We will never forget how much they loved our cat! Marlen was such a sweet person. We know she will be greatly missed! So sorry for your loss, Butch.

Because I stayed at Marlen's house between the age of thirteen to fifteen more than I did my own home, there are too many memories to share. One thing I always remember is how she fell to her knees every night before bedtime regardless of how late the hour and prayed to the Good Lord. Marlen also had a rigid facial routine nightly which probably resulted in that gorgeous skin. For most of our lives we shared birthday and Christmas cards yearly. I will never forget how sweet was her spirit. May the angels lead you into Heaven. Your always friend,

So sorry she is gone. I have such fond memories of being around her when I was young. Sometimes we'd dance, play a board game or play at Aunt Margaret's piano. She was a sweetie.
