Dave words do not exist that can express my feelings for your loss.
I know you just had your right arm cut from you.
I pray the words of King David will help bring peace to your soul...

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

I don't know what to say. I never do, in times like this. It's truly sad when a good person's life is cut short. It makes it hard for those of us who are left. Just know there are a lot of people who care about you. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Dave, Kristin, Michelle & Michael:

I am so, so sorry, & my heart is breaking for all of you!
I'm having a difficult time accepting that she has passed.
I'm so angry with myself that I was unable to respond to her many invitations to go to breakfast these past few months so we could "catch up" & visit, & all her caring texts & phone calls after my back surgery in May.
Marilyn was the most caring, loving, person I've ever known; she always reached out to those in need, especially if she was your friend, it was as if she couldn't do enough!
I know you WILL keep all those other Angels on their toes!!
Love you Marilyn, until we meet again my Dear Friend.

Dear McFadyen family, We are so very sorry to learn of Marilyn's sudden passing. We knew her only as the big fan to her daughter Kristen. It was extra special that she came out to the Methow Valley last summer. We know that meant a lot to her and to Kristen. Wishing you strength, courage and comfort during this difficult time.
