All White Bouquet was sent by Kelly (Flick) Tillman, great niece.

Aunt Marilyn was so witty, sweet, and loving! She helped me out so much when Grandpa Mel was in the hospital. I'll always have great memories of her!!! Prayers to Phil, Kathy, and Scott and their families. Love, Matt, Jack, Brooke, and Kelly (Flick) Tillman

My sympathies to the Welliver Family. Scott, we were at Ervin School together for several years, and Phil, you were my first "coach" in little league baseball (1975). I met Rick and Kathy at an event (church/homeschool?) a few years back. God bless you all and rest in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

My sympathies to Marilyn's family. I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, but spoke with her many times over the years when she would call regarding substituting. She was a gracious, nice lady!

I am very sorry to see of Marilyn's passing. I had thought of her many times the last few years. I substitute taught many years and really appreciated talking and "working" with her when she called for subbing. She got a kick out of my husband's silly remarks sometimes when he answered the phone. She was a nice lady. My sympathies to all the family.
