Mark and Family

So sorry for your loss.
October 03, 2013
I've known Marilyn for about 35 years. She was the mother of my best friend Linda Davis, who did me the favor of becoming my sister-in-law, by marrying my older brother Rod. We used to go over to her house when I was in high-school and hang out. Marilyn was always welcoming, ready for a party, a picnic or whatever else we had in mind. I felt like her house was a home away from home.

I remember on my 21st birthday, Sylvia, Sue and Linda, all went to the White house and secretly prepared a surprise birthday party for me. The next morning, I was duly kidnapped and was brought to a fancy dinner they had prepared, right there with Marilyn by their side making it all possible. Marilyn and Bonnie's family reminded me of my own family, in the way they welcomed others in their home and extended hospitality. On my wedding day, Marilyn let me choose from her many paintings, one for my new home.

Through the years, I've thought of Marilyn as an extended part of my family, and when we came back from Uzbekistan, she helped me out by referring me in my house-cleaning business and even had me clean her own home. She was always encouraging and never got upset during our last 3 years of working together. She became a real friend to me. I admired Marilyn for being a peace-maker and for being there for her family, no matter what she thought about their life-choices. It was brave of her to go all the way to Karlie's wedding this Summer in Idaho but she was always game for anything. I know we will all miss her so much. I wasn't ready to let her go. But I am sure I will meet with her again in heaven. I love you Marilyn. You were lucky to have such an amazing group of kids to be with you through all the final years that you all had together.
Goodbye!

Marilyn was born on September 15, 1931. This is a very special date for my husband and I since it is our wedding anniversary. I will always honor Marilyn on our anniversary. She was very special to us. The first time I really got to interact with Marilyn was when Linda Davis, her eldest daughter was marrying our second son Rodney Davis. She asked me to be part of the wedding team to arrange the wedding ceremony. It was such an honor to me to be working with Marilyn on the wedding. She really was a team person. Many times Marilyn and Bonnie called us for the flooding of their house and we helped move all the furniture and precious pictures from out of the house. We were a great part of their life, Bonnie and Marilyn's life!

Marilyn was such a special artist. Her pictures were so bright and cheerful and displayed nature in the fullest. She gave me a picture to what I call “The golden girl” which looks just like our shared granddaughter Ariana, and I passed it on to her. In the last 3 years, Linda and her mother had such a special bonding with Linda calling her, just before and after work. She would do that every day. All of Marilyn's children were very attentive to her and would drop in and give her dinner and communicate love, even pick up her mail. We enjoyed having Marilyn at our Fourth of July picnic this year. She was such a blessing to have around.

Thank you Jesus for Marilyn's bright mind to the very last of her life!

John 14:1-4 “Don't be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father's home and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know where I am going and how to get there”.

Love you,
Vivian

Marilyn White was born September 15, 1931. I was 3 months old at the time, being born June 2, 1931. About 2 months ago, Vivian and I took her out to lunch and had a great time. Reminiscing over the history and how Linda, her eldest child, met Rodney (our second son) as a result of our community living and youth meetings while in High School. This morning, in my devotion, I was reading a page from "Morning and Evening" by Charles Spurgeon, in which he made the statement, "He who does not prepare for death is more than an ordinary fool, he is a madman". Marilyn was very prepared.

The times when families come together on deep spiritual issues of eternity usually circles around someone departing to the next world. Jesus said if you do not forgive others, neither will your father in heaven forgive you. Love that is eternal has at least 3 components: Forgiveness, Loyalty and Sacrifice! Marilyn had all three of these abundant in her life. It's time for us to reflect on our own lives and evaluate how these three components are being lived out in our own lives and reconcile with anyone we have a variance with, regardless of who is right or wrong.

Seeing Marilyn again and being with her throughout eternity hinges on the answer to these 3 characteristics which only Christ can give us as He lives His life through us to bless the people around us.
