Cousin Janelle sends her loving support and lots of hugs to Debbie and Barry and family. I'm so glad I was able to visit Aunt Marilyn a few times and have fond memories of visiting on the farm in Udell.

Precious memories, how they linger. The song says it all. I have many memories of Marilyn, as the mom of my dear friend, Debbie. I loved going to her house, and I was always made to feel welcome. My prayers go out to the family.
