My deepest sympathy goes out to Marilyn's Family. She was a lovely person to know, and have very good memories of her in H.S. when we would get together in her Dad's. auto, on Sunday afternoon. Met up with her often shopping and we would have many laughs. May you rest in peace Marilyn and soar with the angels.
