Pam and Angie,
So sorry to hear about your Mom. I have a lot of good memories growing up of her and your Dad. I remember going camping with all of you and spending as much time at your house, as we did at ours. Thinking of you and your families!! Love, Sue

Although I didn't know Marlene well, I do know how much she was loved. My condolences to her daughters and the rest of the Blad family. No matter how short or long one's life is, the most important thing is how well that someone was loved ... and continues to be.
