    I had the privilege of spending time with Marilyn this last year. I enjoyed her. She told me many things about growing up, her family, her hometown, and bragged mostly about her children & grandchildren. She shared pictures and told me stories. I miss her. I have been thinking of her family. I know they’re missing her too.

    Deepest sympathy to the family. I worked with Marilyn at Hallmark and she always had a smile and joyful spirit. Fond memories of those times.
