Marilyn, Even though our friendship was so short, you left me with a lot of memories and laughs that we shared. I know how proud Travis was of his Grandma as he would talk to me about you quite often. And also "Thank-You" for all the help you gave Emily and taking Hazel to her Doctor Appts. All you did for all was greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten. My Deepest Sympathy To The Family. Jeff Holstine.
