Dear Bob, Marty, Lonnie and family...We are shocked and saddened by the great loss of our dear friend. Marilyn was a bright light in our neighborhood and I enjoyed seeing her on the porch in the summer, looking at the newest flower blooms in the garden, catching up on the latest goings on and getting her delicious muffins. I will miss her friendship, smile and conversations. I feel blessed to have had her in my life.
