So sorry to learn of Marilyn’s passing. I worked with Marilyn during the ‘80’s at Maine Line Tours. I have some wonderful memories of the times we had attending ABA (American Bus Association) conventions, the many lunches we shared at the Merry Manor Restaurant, times we traveled to New Hampshire to have our palms many memories. When I moved to Florida I would contact Marilyn to let her know I was coming to Maine and we would get together and reminisce about those days. She was a dear and valued friend. I shall miss her. ❤️
