So sorry to hear this news. I have so many happy memories of Marilyn and all the fun we had at the Milligan house when we were kids. She always put up with us with grace and humor.

John there is definitely a sadness with Marilyn's passing. But I will remember the Mom you and Linda introduced me to at your wedding which took place at her home, at dinner with Kevin and his brother, and your trip to Egypt. She was always so kind and gracious to me when I saw her. I'm sure her spirit will always be with you and the rest of your family.

Dear John and Linda and family, I enjoyed spending that Thanksgiving with your mom and your family a few years ago and was so happy to have met her. She welcomed me, she held my hand, and she made me laugh. She was a lovely lady.

Love and sympathy,

John.....Your mom was wonderful to us as we grew up in north Sidney. Many years later I'd see her at the library. My best to you and the Milligan family.

I always enjoyed seeing Marilyn at our Longfellow Breakfasts. Remembering the good times and sharing those with your family will make this very hard time just a little easier. Thoughts and prayers are with your family.
