"My sympathy to Jim, the four girls, spouses and grandchildren. (Sheryl lynn was even born on my birthday!). Marilyn and I go back "a few" to Microdata's begining and end-and ever after. We shared mostly good times. Lots of fun and laughs and tales - mostly good ones! She was the tall blond - I the short blond.
With Love and Memories.  Sandy Randall"

"For comfort this verse comes to mind,"Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, what ever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if there is any virtue or and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things." Philippians 4:8.   How wonderful that memories of Marilyn bring to my heart and mind God's word.  I pray for the family."

It was our pleasure to meet Jim and visit and renew my cousin relationship with Marilyn a couple of years ago.  I have fond memories and love for Marilyn and Maureen from the early days of our lives.  What a lovely, gracious, and kind woman she was!  Winslow and I will always cherish the afternoon we spent together with you, Jim, and Marilyn.  May your memories give you peace."
