I was shocked and saddened when I came across the news of Marlene’s passing in the Western Review. In recent years we would just catch up about the girls at the grocery store or Wal- Mart. It was always great to hear how they were doing and Marlene’s love for her family was so obvious. My sincere condolences to Fred, Kayla, Chelsea and your families.
