  1. Dear Kevin and Jacqui,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have thought about you both often since we left the hospice in early January. Marilyn loved smiling at the baby when I’d bring him by. She was gentle and bright and I know how much you will miss her. You are in my thoughts and prayers. In my deepest sorrow, I think of you too – we are all interconnected.

    There could never be another Marilyn. She was our dearest friend, always so thankful for any little thing you did for her, always interested in what people had to say and remembering the little details that showed she was truly listening. Always a compliment, a wonderful way of making you feel important, she would go out of her way to do things for people that was amazing
    We are so happy that Marilyn came into our lives and became our friend
