Dear Mother Marilyn,
When this world lost you, it didn’t seem right for it to just go on turning like nothing had happened. It should have stopped, like our world did.
I will never forget singing to you in your hospital room the night before you passed. You used some of your very last breaths to try to sing along to “How Great Thou Art.” That room was a temple that night.
Your funeral was so very special. The multitudes came! You have touched and changed so many lives, Grandma. Your family loves you with a perfect love. Your George adores you. He misses you so. It is sad to see what your absence does to him. But he feels you near. We all do. And for now, your nearness is enough.
Our hearts are broken. But our faith is strong. We miss you and we will do all in our power to be worthy to go where you are.
The ears of my children will be filled with stories of their Grandma Great, Marilyn. Thank you for the legacy of love you have left us.
Until many tomorrows, and with all my heart,
