It s 2 pm on Saturday, the day of your funeral. I was unable to come today because of work, but you have been on my mind so much. You were always such a fun person to be around and always kind and loving. I have so many fond memories of family parties and camping. When I hear or think of the song Paper Roses I remember how we would sing and have such fun. I know we didn't see each other much in recent years, but you were always loved. You will be missed!

We are so sorry for your loss. We reminder when she would knit baby sweaters for our son and daughter and how talented she was. She was sweet and caring to all of us and she will be greatly missed. Our prayers and thoughts go out to all of you. Love Lee. Sandie, Cathie Black

We cannot express how sad we feel about the loss of a very very dear friend. Marilyn we know you are having fun with Rae Jean and Melanie. We know you are also playing "dirty hearts" with Mac and Leone. Jim and I have so many fond memories of our times together, our RV and fishing trips and many meals we share, the summers when we shared corn, tomatoes and Bob's wonderful shrimp and not to forget the Christmas peanut brittle. We will forever miss you. We love you so much. Our condolences to all her family.
