When my father, now 85 years old, was a boy in Burlington, he would visit his aunt, Minnie Etta Faucette Long, Marlyn's great grandmother. I grew up hearing many stories about Aunt Minnie. To my distant cousins, Jeff and April, please accept my deepest sympathy on your mom's death. I was shocked and deeply, deeply saddened.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I knew Marlyn years ago when she lived in Burlington and feel out of touch with her until my husband, Joe Davis, and I built Her Mom, Ms. Clapp a house. I had no clue that the cancer had come back. She was a great lady and I know she will be missed by all.I feel blessedI having known her.

Dear Randy, Jeff, April and Family,
Marlyn was such a dear friend of mine. I have known her for about 12 years. But, the last three we became very close due to our work together. She is an inspiration. I think of her in these three words: Courage, Grace and Laughter. She never let anything get her down and always had a smile and quick wit that left you in stitches. I am blessed to have been a part of her life and to have known her. She is watching over us and that gives us some comfort during this difficult time. Love to all of you and God's Peace.

Marlyn was such an example of how to love and live life. I leaned so much from her honest approach to life and her passion for living. She was a great Christian friend and example. Her legacy will live on through her wonderful children, grandchildren, husband, and those of us who are now different because of knowing her.

Randy, I'm so sorry to hear about Marlyn and was not aware of her illness. I remember Marlyn from NCSU when you first started dating her; I liked her immediately and knew you two were meant for each other...and you have proven that! May God bless and comfort you during this time and bring back many happy memories of your time with her.

Marlyn was such an inspiration to me. We were co-workers and Facebook friends and shared so much in common, such as our Christian faith, our families, our love for dogs and wanting to be the best sales reps we could be. The last message I received from Marlyn was on July 10? She signed off with Big Hug. I will forever feel that hug! I learned so much from Marlyn and will miss her daily. My prayers are with the family during this very difficult time.
