To Dewey and family,
I am a former patient and volunteer at CHO and have known Marilyn for 9 years. She has fought the most valiant fight of anyone I know. Her sense of humor and her audacity prevailed in the chemo room whenever she was there. She has been through so much and I hope that she can be at peace and finally stop fighting. She loved her family and her husband and wanted so much to be well for them. I was in awe of her and she certainly helped me through some rough times–just trying to emulate her example. I will miss her.
