I only met Marilyn a few years ago but liked her right away. She was a lovely person. But she is in a much better place now and we will see her again. Praying for you Donna and for all her family and friends.

So sorry to hear of her passing. We went to the Villa together and caught up again at our last reunion. She was a lovely person inside and outside. Prayers to her family.
