We met Marianne and Wes when they had their lovely home above Rollinsville. They were both so talented and such a delight. They were our guests at our cabin sing-alongs and always added so much good humor as well as delicious Danish pastries. Marianne returned to the Rollinsville area last summer, and we were fortunate to share two great days with her. Each Christmas she sent a painting that Wes had created and with it always came a newsy note. We have framed and will always keep the lovely art she shared and her interesting notes. We are very sad that we won't enjoy her laugh, her joy, and her wisdom, but we'll always keep her in our hearts.
Sincerely and with sympathy, Esther and Sally Rings
Marianne and Wes were such wonderful people. They both encouraged me and worked with me to pursue my photography. Marianne worked with me for many years framing many of my pieces for shows. She taught me how to frame and we spent many hours in her basement working together. I so enjoyed our "tea times" together. I was out of county when she passed. My condolences to her family. I feel a hole in my heart with her passing. Bonnie Heidbrak
She was a wonderful woman with a heart of gold. She will be missed.
My heart is filled with so much sadness in the loss of your Mother. I know that you will miss her so much as you have missed your Dad after his passing. I thought so highly of Uncle Wes and Aunt Marianne. I always looked forward to their visits when I was living in Alabama. I made it to Colorado only once to visit them with my two sisters in 2002. The visit was such a delight. You couldn't have asked for a better host and hostess.
Jens, Peter and Stacy, my deepest sympathy goes out to you.
Your mother was a wonderful caring person and we feel her loss also. She and your dad were best friends of my parents, Bud and Trudi Palser. We felt a close connection to both of them. Hold onto all of your memories. Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Love, Dave and Randa Lewis
