Randy and Tim,

I remember your mom and dad well and what good friends they were with Erma and my dad, Ray Harland. I always enjoyed visiting with Marilyn-she was such an attractive lady. My sympathy to you and yours.

I am saddened to hear of Marilyn's passing. Your parents, and of course Karen, hold wonderful memories for me. Your parents welcomed me into their home and I enjoyed being with them--and of course, Russ at work at Knapheide was a pleasure. I will cherish Karen as one of my dearest friends. Marilyn always had a smile and a camera. I remember all of her photo albums lined up on the bookshelf.
I was out of town at the time of her passing. You have my deepest sympathy.
