Dear Bob & Family, please accept our deepest condolences with the loss of Marilyn. We ran into Marilyn so many times while out shopping & she would always say that we all had to make plans to go out for supper. Our hearts are broken that we all kept putting it off. She was such a wonderful, happy person. She will be missed by many. RIP Marilyn. Heaven now has another angel.
