John and Kelly, Max and Susan....Your mom had a way of making everybody feel good! With her upbeat personality and contagious smile and laughter, you couldn’t help but feel happy right along with her. That was her special gift. I remember your mom most from the reunions, and I always made it a point to go over and talk to her..... and she was always there grinning from ear to ear. Quite often when driving on St. Lawrence Ave., I would see your mom and dad sitting out on their porch. It just made me smile. You must have thousands of happy memories of time spent with your mom.....and although it’s hard now, those same memories will bring you peace, comfort,.... and most of all smiles. I am so sorry for your loss..... Thinking of you, and your mom.

John and Max, I will really miss your mom at the family reunions. She was always a bright spot wherever she went.I would stop at your mom and dads whenever I would see your dad sitting on the porch and we would be laughing all the time I was there. Your mom would come out and we just had a good time. Your mom and dad were good people and I will miss them.I feel so sorry for your families loss.

To the best aunt in the world I loved her so much. So many memories of us on the phone for 2 hours or more talking and laughing. Her wonderful laugh. I am so saddened by this, it is such a shock. I love you Aunt Marilyn, I hope you are resting in peace and out of pain. You were so good to me. I am going to miss you so much, it will be such a lonely time without you that is going to last a long time. You were always there for me. I love you always and forever. It just doesn't seem like the world can go on without you in it I love you always and forever. I'll see you again Your niece, Cindy
