To the LeBlanc family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I met Marilyn and Ron as a result of them taking one of the evening walks as they passed by my house. We chatted and each time they passed they stopped we chatted a little more. Over time I realized what special people they both were. I fondly remember taking walks up the hill to have a cup of tea with them.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I have wonderful memories of Marilyn working with her at Union Hospital many years ago. ...we shared so many stories and always had a few laughs . Although I haven't worked with her in a long time , each timeI bumped into her it was like we had been good friends forever. May her families many memories bring great comfort to each of them during this difficult time .
