    Aunt Marilyn was so special. Enjoyed many many summers with her at Humarock Beach. Enjoyed her wit and knowledge and discussions about local, state, national and international events.

    Miss you.

    Kim, I am sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I won’t forget how your mom put up with a gaggle of high school girls invading her basement! I unfortunately am traveling so will not be able to make the services, but wanted to let you know I am thinking of you during this difficult time.
