It was 1984 when I met Marilyn and Willie on the F train station. We started to ride the train every day. We had the most wonderful conversations. They were so interesting that passengers fought to stand in front of us Just to hear
It was in February of 1984 when Marilyn told me of an opening at the Brooklyn boro Presidents Office. She got me an interview. I went in and two months later I-was hired..
I have been indebted to her for all these years. That job made my life secure financially.
I was at her wedding to Willie. I was sad when they moved to Florida. We have maintained a relationship all these years. I was in the phone with her the day before she passed. She was very weak and couldn’t talk.
I had been trying to call her and no response. Today, I called the hospital and was told she wasn’t there. I called her number and left a voice mail. I knew in my heart that she passed.
It’s with great sadness that I say goodbye to the woman who was a great person and a wonderful friend. Marilyn I am sorry you are gone. But Rest In Peace Loretta

My whole life has been a memory of the many cherished moments shared with my mother...there was laughter, tears, happiness, anger, adventures, dinners, dancing, activities, shopping, struggles, and most of all LOVE...thru it all, love always came thru like a shining star... I’m so grateful to have been given the gift of Marilyn to be my mother, to guide me, raise me from a child to adult, to make sure I had food to eat, a roof over my head and clothes on my back...to teach me to be self sufficient, independent and a responsible adult...when the time came, she set us free, but always hovered over us, always ready to be there if she was needed...and of course, even when she wasn’t needed...but she took her job as a mother seriously...she will always live on in our hearts and her essence and powerful presence will always surround me...love you to eternity and back...
