Felicia, Tonya, and Lea, so sad to think the beautiful light that was Aunt Marilyn has dimmed in this life but I know she will always light our memories. I remember the first time she and Uncle Elzie came home to Tennessee to visit. We all immediately fell in love with her and remain so Whenever you sat down to talk with her, she made you feel as though you were the very person she had been waiting to see. That was her special gift to all of us. She will be missed but leaves us a legacy of love, laughter and friendship as well as a family of beloved cousins. God bless and keep you all and give you comfort and joy in your memories of her and your dad
Love to you all,
"Cousin"John and Connie

Marilyn was in my graduating class of 1960 from Aiken High School. We took several business classes together. She and Elsie were also our neighbors at the Thunderbird Boating Club. She taught me how to make smores. A wonderful lady. I am so sorry for your loss.
