I just read about the passing of Marilyn in the paper. I am so sorry for your loss. Marilyn and Charles were very dear friends to mom and dad, Ray and JoAnne Parris. I am sorry I missed her service today. Marilyn was always a joy to visit.
I treasure those times and the memory of her loving kindness and beautiful smile. May your memories give you comfort and may God's blessings give you peace in the days ahead. Teresa
