So sorry to hear this, I was looking forward to seeing her, I've been missing her :(. I'm so disheartened to hear of this, she was wonderful and my favorite fun, sassy woman! So sad, you are very loved. Always.


So sorry to hear about your Mom, Marilyn. It’s been a tough year for your family. May you be blessed by her memory.
