Not sure what to say?

I want to express my sympathy to the family and friends. May the God of all comfort be with you, and give you the strength during this difficult time. Psalm 30:2

I will miss you...

Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years.
May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

So sad to hear of Marlenes passing. Knew her and Les for many years always fixed my cards for me. May she Rest In Peace now great lady whom was loved by many!

Marlene has been like a mother to me my whole life. I will miss our talks over the fence. I love you and will miss you always. Stephanie Bowen

God bless her soul.
