Dear Mrs. Roberts and family,

I received the news from my brother Paul in Fort Worth of Marilyn passing away. I remember my parents driving me and Marilyn down to "Lion's Camp" one summer when I was nine years old. We chatted the whole way down. She was such a sweet and positive person. May she rest in peace. I have been living in Washington DC area for the past 20 years so I lost touch with her over the years. I also remember Mrs. Roberts' wonderful smile and wonder how she is doing these days. Tell her I said Hi and hope that she remembers me. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Mrs. Roberts and family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Few years ago we were thrilled to see each other when we finally ran into each other, we spoke for few minutes before she goes back to work. She still has the same smile and laughter always. She will be sorely missed and we will see her someday. My thoughts and prayers are with you and her sisters in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort. Marilyn, may you rest in peace. Love always,

I am so sorry to hear about Marilyn. I worked with her when she first went to work at FAA and boy did we have some good times! She was truly an inspiration to us all. I still have pictures of her when we went to halloween parties. At one party I made her an inchworm costume and she won first place in the competition! Such a sweet girl - she laughed at herself and many many times me, Sonia, Tina, Charlotte, and Diane were the brunt of her jokes. And what a good laugh we all had. She was a charm. She will sorely be missed but there are such wonderful memories to carry forth and bring a smile to our faces. Thank you Marilyn for being a part of my life, for I am blessed because of you.

From the Simmons family to the Roberts family.
Your loss is our loss. Our memories of Marilyn are all special. The great times our families had together in Sulphur Springs are some of our fondest. Marilyn accomplished so much and was loved by so many, words can't describe. We only wish we could have lived closer so she could have been in our lives more. We love you all! We always will. God Bless

To the Roberts Family,

I had heard a lot about Marilyn and she had heard a lot about me but we had not met each other till around 1998 or so. When we met for the first time, we liked each other a lot. She was a great lady with wonderful personality and radiant smile. I got to know her better through the Fort Worth Regional Day School for the Deaf Alumni Association board meetings and reunions. She will be sorely missed by all of us! My condolences go out to you all. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I love you, Marilyn.

I will truly miss Marilyn. She was a great friend. We shared many moments together in the Airports Division. I enjoyed he smiling and laughing and she never complained about anything. I can remember the time I first assisted her in her cube and I gave her a hard time about the dusting and why no one would do it. I forgot she couldn't reach we both laughed. Another time was when myself,
a friend Dee and Marilyn were in the elevator and she came into the elevator and looked at us and said "Wow, you guys are really tall" We thought that was commendable because we both are only 5ft tall. What a joy she brought to all of us. She will be missed. With much sympathy Cindy L Myers-Vaughn.

Marilyn was my LPA little sister. She was a unique little gal who enjoyed life, enjoyed meeting people, and yes, enjoyed "Happy Hour" as most of us do. LPA was a big part of her life and she served it well. She was proud of her role with FAA a was I know a delight to them.
I'll miss you terribly Marilyn Sue. LPA conventions won't be the same without you with us. You were my rock and you were my constant friend it will be difficult without you, but I know that you are once again "your ol self", laughing, your whole, free of pain, you know us all and most importantly you, Your are with your Daddy.

Through Connie, Al and I met Marilyn. What a delightful person to have known. Al especially remembers a beautiful evening when he was asked to accompany them to dinner with a couple of her 'LITTLE PEOPLE' He still relates that evening to friends of ours. Please know that you are in our prayers and remember the good and beautiful life that you were able to share with her.

Dearest Evelyn, Connie, Jane and Ruth,
As you know Marilyn and I go back to when we first met at 12 yrs old, and have shared many things together through our years. She was talented, intelligent, and one of the most thoughtful people I knew. I loved her dearly, and I will miss her. But, I know one day we shall see each other again.

Dear Mrs. Roberts and family,

Marilyn and I have known each other since the 1978 Dallas LPA (Little People of America) convention, we had so many wonderful times together. I still have many of her handwritten letters she wrote to me during the 70's & early 80's!

In the early days, for many years we were a dynamic trio...with our LP friend Rosie (black hair), me (brunette) and Marilyn (beautiful blonde), people called us "Charlie's Angels" and we always loved that. It's hard to believe she is gone. She was a wonderful bright spirit and will always have a special place in my heart. May she rest in peace now. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

With love and affection,

Thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I had the pleasure of serving with Marilyn on the board of directors of LPA for a number of years. She was very dedicated to the cause and a beautiful soul. Bless you.

Dear Mrs Roberts, Marilyn's sisters, Niece & Family:

It was a pleasure and an honor to have known Marilyn. She was such a free and generous spirit and welcomed me with open arms at my first LPA conference in Dallas in 1978. We had some good times after that first meeting that I will always cherish. And now one of our “Charlie's Angels” is looking down over all of us in her new home.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Love,
Rosie Lawas-Smith and Darrell Smith

My thoughts and prayers go out to Marilyn/s family. I have not seen her in a few years, but have great memories of how beautiful Marilyn was inside and out. She always had a great sense of humor too. We had many good times at Regional and National LPA conferences. Rest in Peace my friend! Ruth "Morrow" Stratton
