Dear Jane & Family:
I was saddened to read of Marilyn's passing. I first met your mother in 1966 - she was my supervisor at Mauk Drugs. She mentored me for my high school bookkeeping class. Marilyn was instrumental in my becoming a small business owner because I use many skills that she taught me. I've silently thanked her many times in my career. Remember that loving memories are God's gift to you of your Mom whom He has chosen to hold in His arms forever.
Jane, our condolences for the loss of your mom. Glad that dad, Scott and myself got the chance to visit with her for at least a few minutes a couple weeks ago.
Roger, Janet and family.
