Jill, Tom and Family, I loved working at Warner-Lambert with you Mom; she was an angel. Always loved her vibrant personality and willingness to help everyone. I would have come, but we are not in town.

To my family;
Marilyn was a woman who was a pilar of strength and support for her family. She would do anything possible to be there for them, love them, and help them in anyway. I'm so thankful that I had a chance to be apart of her life. Although she was taken from us in the physical sense, I'm sure her spirit is forever with her family she loved so much. She is also reunited with her husband and I'm sure he is happy to have her back. I love you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" sustain you during this difficult time. (Isaiah 61:1,2). My prayers are with your family.

For 43 years you've always been there. I am so broken. I know a part of me went with you and for that I'm happy. Rest now my friend. You have won and your race is finished. I love you always.
