Dear Family members of Marilyn,
We are saddened at the passing of our friend Marilyn.  We tried to visit her often and enjoyed the walks down memory lane with her. She always enjoyed talking of the "old" days when she was rising you boys and some of your antics. She enjoyed talking about her brothers and sisters since we didn't know them.    She missed Bill II.  We will remember those visits. Our sincere condolences and prayers for all of you.
Friends, the Swartzs

We were so sorry to hear of Marilyn's passing! She is in a much better place that she deserves now!
We were at Elderwood on Thursday to see my sister and saw William and Sterling who filled us in on Marilyn's condition.
We will not be able to go to the funeral as I (Dianna) have been in the hospital for 6 days and I have a doctor appt. on Monday. So sorry we have to miss it.
She was a wonderful friend to us!
Praying for all the family!

Dear ones- I am so sorry for the hurt you folks are experiencing during this time. I didn't really know either of your folks very well and had only met them a couple of times. But I have met you, Keith, Bill and Sterling, and can identify with your heartache and the heartache of your family to some extent because of the sorrows I've been through. But I know, as you all do also, that when we belong to Jesus, we have One who is able to comfort us during our deepest sorrows, and is abundantly able to help us as we go through these experiences. May each one of you find that to be true!

Message:Dear Sterling and Family Members,
I was saddened to hear of your mom's passing.
I recall what a kind and gracious host she was when I visited. I still have the lovely crocheted wall piece your mom sent to me for a birthday gift one time, so thoughtful.
May our Lord Jesus comfort your hearts, and balance your grief with the uplifting memories you can treasure until you see her again in glory. 1 Thess. 4:13-18
