To the wonderful family of Marlene’s I want to extend my deepest sympathy to all of you. I have such sweet memories of your Mom and Dad and what fun us kids always had. Garold to the man that I have always claimed as my brother my heart is you. But as you know we serve a mighty God and one day we will be able to see our loved ones again. It was time for Marlene to go home because we all know that God has a plan for her now and she is in no more pain or misery.
Know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love to the family

I loved your mother very much! She was a kind hearted lady. She was an excellent nurse and very talented artist! May she Rest In Peace and I’m praying for you all!
