    My sincere condolences to the family of Marilyn. She was a wonderful lady and I will miss seeing her taking her walks each day. She would always stop and talk for a while when we met. Will miss these times.

    Myron, please accept my sincere sympathy. Marilyn was the young one! Even though she was several years younger than our class, she was so good to help plan and participate in our class of 56 reunions. I really enjoyed getting to know her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Myron.
