I remember Marylin well.I spent the better part of my childhood riding the same bus with her and going to school with her. She was always a cheerful and sweet girl and I am sure her remaining family will miss her greatly. So sorry for your loss.

Oh my Alana. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve been out of the loop too long and I didn’t know Marylin Jo was ill. Prayers for you and the family. She’s with Momma and Daddy now.
