We will definitely miss Marilyn. We sent her an honorary Grandma card so we talked about her a lot on the evening of Mother’s Day. She was a wonderful woman—who popped into the family and fit right in. It was obvious she loved our Pop Pop and her sprightly attitude kept him young! My daughter Natalie remembers her bubbly, talkative personality and how she was always interested in what Natalie had to say. And she never forgot our daughters on special occasions. If not for her, we would not have a Model T. So thank you Marilyn for leaving us with such wonderful memories and one of our prized possessions. Until we meet again Grandma Marilyn—-we know you’ll be our angel now.
