Dear Marilyn, You were always concerned about us and not yourself! Loved singing ,sharing, praying, being part of the Cursillo team with you. You had a big big heart and a radiant smile -- loved our womens camping trips together! When I was in need you made me all those beautiful hats -- your creations were endless -- including an Easter bonnet for me. You loved our Lord and you served him well. Thank you for surrounding me with your love and care. I see your happy smile with a cat on your lap and an always look on the bright side attitude. Now you are with your Lord where the sun always shines. Thank you for being our sun. Love Mary xxx

I was able to attend the service but could not stay to give condolences to the family. It was an excellent service and eulogy. I knew Marilyn as a volunteer with VCARS and respected and enjoyed her in that role.
