Marlene was my bundle of joy she was full of it never a dull moment. To many memories from getting her out and about. If she was a little spicy in the morning I would ask her “you want round rock donuts” and she would reply yes in a matter of a heart beat. Listening to the radio shaking our shoulders, singing and bursting out, when taking her for a drive around the block. Going for ice cream we didn’t believe in a diet. Live laugh and love and not take life for granted was our mindset. Having our 7and7 was our little secret, she would tell me “just between us merve”. One of her favorite spots to eat was waffles from IHOP with her coffee, and looking at who goes by to either say something nice or not. Making it fun for her too was a challenge from doing videos for her family with her singing and wishing them birthday wishes
She would say “happy birthday to you happy birthday to merv” and I would say not me marlene and had to do it all over again until it was right. She was an inspiration to my life from giving words of wisdom handle everything in life with prayers and this to shall pass, don’t take crap from no one and speak up when u have too. She would say “merv I love you” and I would say I love u too with a big heart and we both would blow it up to heaven, “what would I do without you” she would say to me then I would say what would I do without you too, I would be lost, and she would say “oh merv” she would reply. She loved her music from Elvis Presley to the Bellamy Brothers let ur love flow that was one of her last song that she sang, when giving her bed bath and beyond. God and her flock was the love for her, and appreciating all of her caregivers she would say. ❤She was such a beautiful loving person, so humble and so understanding to everyone that she came across with . If I could I would write a whole book with my beginning adventures with Mr. America and precious Marlene.
