Marilyn as made me laugh when she was at Edgewood. Watching her drive her mobile chair around. Yes, getting speeding tickets too. Iím so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful and beautiful person.

When I was little and while living in Ft. Meade, I ran away from home . . . to the Benders. Marilyn called my mom, gave me a treat and cajoled me into going home. She is a great lady with a great family that lead a great life. I am thankful she graced my life.
