My heart goes out to all of you. Marilyn (Mare lu) was a wonderful person. Her love for her family was tremendous and will live on in her memories.
We shared "the week that was" her hire in date, her birthday, Dr. Chandra's birthdate and my anniversary. We had many laughs.
Even though we didn't talk much over the years since she moved from Lake Orion, we knew we had each other's backs. Love and miss you Mare lu.
