I am so sorry to hear of Marilyns passing. After the initial shock my heart truly did break for your loss. Marilyn was very set in her ways but over the 10 years I have been coming to your house, I had grown to think of her as a friend. Marilyns love for her chidren, grandchildren and Dennis was very strong and she always had such high praise for them all. Marilyn put up a tough battle over the years, one I don’t think I could of done myself. She was very strong and always positive about her illness and just kept smiling and saying her ‘thank you’s”. I was glad to have known her and call her a friend. Take care and may you know you are in my thoughts .

Tester family: We were sorry to hear about Marilyn. Our thoughts and our prayers are with your family.

So sorry to hear of Marilyn’s passing. Our thought are with all of the family during this sad time.
I’m so sorry to hear of Marilyn’s passing.
I recall many years ago while doing home support, that Marilyn’s intelligence and inquisitiveness was perfect for these “new” computers that many of us had discovered. I told her that she would enjoy one and many years later, she told my daughter, Ashley, (while doing student training in Marilyn & Dennis’ home), that “Your mother got me into computers” 🙂 I was touched that she remembered our time together, but that was Marilyn. A friend always.
She was always a lady, full of strength, dignity and spite 🙂 She will be missed by those she touched.
My thoughts and prayers are with Dennis, Corrina & Family, Denise & Family, and Sean & Family <3 Forever in your hearts, often on your mind.
I am at a loss for adequate words to express my sadness for you. Love yourself right now, stay close to family and friends. God will handle the rest.
Dwight and Debra Pond
Corinna and family , we are so shocked and sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. We know she was a wonderful mom, because you are her daughter and you are the best. We are here for you ,anything any time xo

Dear Dennis & Family,
We are so very sorry to learn of Marilyn’s passing. I have wonderful memories when we women were able to go to the “new” Walmart in Bridgewater when the men were working. Our grandchildren are all about the same age and we had time to look at photos and chat over the years. I shall truly miss her as a very special friend. May the “life Jouney” Marilyn kept on a daily basis be of comfort to all in the months and years ahead. Sincere Sympathy, Marie & Rick

You are in our thoughts and our prayer’s. Love you all and take care of each other.

Dear Corrina & Family,
Our hearts go out to you and your family at this time.
Dear Dennis & Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Marilyn was a true inspiration to all that knew her. Just imagine how much effort over the years it must have taken her just to get up and start her day. Yet she did it for many years and even on her worst days she had a smile a good morning and a kiss for her loving husband and her puppy Cuddles. I will never forget Marilyn she has taught alot of us how to get through life no matter what it throws at you , with grace and dignity, just as Marilyn did. She is now able to dance with the Angels . What a beautiful Angel she will be.
Even through the years and the miles, I have the fondest of memories of Aunt Marilyn! She was a wonderful person, a lovely smile, good sense of humor and alway a kind word. Our thoughts and prayers to you Uncle Dennis and your family & friends. Our Condolences.
denise i am so sorry to hear of your loss..you are in my thoughts honey..take care..xo

Dale and Linda Charlton
There is an encouraging thought in the bible at Revelation 21: 4,5. The is a promise from Jehovah our God for the near future. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. For the former have passed away. And the one seated on the throne said: Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says.”Write because these words are faithful and true.” Dale and Linda Charlton
Auntie, Dennis & Family
My heart goes out to all the family. Take care of each other. Auntie you will be sadly missed, I will cherish our time spent together.XO
