David and family - our deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved, Marlene! We have such warm and sweet memories of times spent together at the PCA conventions and meetings. Our last lunch together was at Hard Rock Cafe In NOLA and we laughed and sang while y’all were in meetings! Special memories. She was a lady filled with grace and was a joy to everyone she met!
