    So thankful I was able to reconnect with Marilyn a few weeks before her fall. We talked hours about old times, friends and family. Marilyn lived for her family and the love and care they gave. John, she loved your visits and rice pudding. Linda, she raved about your cooking “Just like my mother cooked” and how generous you are. We can all thank God for the gift Marilyn was to us. Rest In Peace dearest lady.
