I shall always remember Marilyn as the epitome of dignity......a true lady. She will be missed. She and Garland were wonderful parents. As Mary needed some special care, Marilyn responded with the love and devotion provided by an adoring mom. I truly admired her. May memories of your mom comfort both of you.
