Sorry for your loss. I remember going on bike rides in Young America with Michelle Cohee and stopping by their house and looking at all the beautiful stained glass pieces. My condolences.

Dear Marilyn and family, so sorry to hear of your loss! I came to care for you and Dick after meeting you at Wellbrooke . It was kind of like family, when you get to know and see people every day. I always told Dick what beautiful blue eyes he had, and also a great smile! You were always there to listen Marilyn with a sweet smile on your face also! Please know that we love you and are praying for you and all your family. Hope to see you and keep in touch, I am sorry we didn't get back to Wellbrooke, but that doesn't mean we didn't think of you with fond memories! Love. Don + Jane
