Tonya, James, Stephen, Denise and family -
You are in my prayers! You know, I can still hear Marilyn's laugh, taste her delicous egg casserole, yummy white chocolate pretzels & pecans; I can feel the warmth of her hugs and the joy of her love & care for me (okay, and others too!) and her loving scolding (and yours too!)... Marilyn, Pat and YOU are always in my heart. "Abrazos" (Hugs) - and lots of love!

Tonya and Stephen, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. Marilyn and I have been friends for a long time. I had no idea about this as my mother was in the hospital and I have been there for a week. I will keep you and your families in my prayers.

To Marilyn's Family,
I am saddened to learn of your loss. Marilyn was a classmate as we went to school together in Borger since elementary school. Although we loss touch with one another over the years, we did speak around the times of our class reunions and catch up with each other. May God's blessings and peace be with you at the difficult time.
