I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Aunt Marilyn was a remarkable woman; so very strong and determined in all the right ways. She had a type of poise in her personality that was gentle and kind.
The last time I saw her was in Florida at my father, Cecil’s. She had difficulty getting around but as soon as she spoke I knew she was the same person as always.
Many people, including myself, are grateful to have known her.

We wish sincere condolences to Carl and Marilyn's family. Although we traveled separate paths as adults we considered Carl and Marilyn as Greene family. We remember the old days of Greene and its inhabitants fondley and Carl and Marilyn were among those memories.
Although this is a sad time we prefer to remember the fun times and memories with fondness. God's speed Marilyn!
