Not sure what to say?

It has been a year since Marilyn's passing and Chi and I continue to keep Marilyn in our thoughts and prayers. We have a picture of Marilyn and Rich and me and Chi from our Royal Caribbean cruise from a while ago on our table. What a beautiful woman. We miss her dearly. May her soul rest in peace.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. Connie Priest & All Your1964 Classmates.

I didn't know Marilyn that well but she married my best friend growing up and that was good enough for me. Whenever Mary Lou and I would get together with Rich and Marilyn she made you feel comfortable as if we were all long lost family.
I got to see Marilyn and Rich not long before they bought the house in Florida and we went to LBI for breakfast. I know she will be missed by all who knew her.
My deepest condolences to my best friend Rich and his children. God bless.

As I remember, Marilyn in High School, she was a beautiful person, inside & out. My sincere condolences to her Family & Friends.

Marilyn was a great person. Chi and I will miss the times we went to dinner and played cards.
I will never forget the many boat trips that we took from their beach house.
Chi and I will keep Marilyn in our thought and prayers. My condolences to Rich, Alison, Ricky and all the family.
