Dear Bob and Family,
You have our deepest sympathy for your loss. Marilyn was a fine person with a friendly greeting whenever we met. She was part of the group when we learned to play dominoes a few years back. We wish those good days could be repeated. We will remember Marilyn in our thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely yours,
Barbara & John Klein
