My deepest sympathy to you, Marty and Carolyn, on the loss of your mother. She was such a very sweet lady. I know she will be missed, and if there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. Margie and I both live here in Punta Gorda, FL, and we have talked about you two several times. Again, my sympathy. God bless you and the rest of your family.

Dear Carolyn and all of your family. I am extending my prayers, sympathy and friendship to you on the loss of your mom. Carolyn spoke of her mom many, many times and I know she was a wonderful woman and I am sure you all have many happy memories. I know this is a difficult time for you, but always the beginning the happy memories might make you sad, but later on those same memories are what sustain you.

Family and Dear Friends of Marjorie,

WE offer our sincere condolence to you all. We are friends of Carolyn & Jim Mann and had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with Marjorie while she stayed with Carolyn & Jim. She was such a sweet and loving lady. I just had to have a hug before we left each time we got to visit with her.

Her sweetness and love of life will be precious memories that she left for you.

Myrl and Pat St.Clair

My heart felt condolences to you Larry and Mary and the entire Patten Family. May God grant you peace and comfort during this difficult time. I am so grateful that God put Marjorie in my life, I am grateful I had the opportunity to spend time with her and get to know her, she was a joy to be with. She had a keen sense of humor and a beautiful smile to match her kind heart. She will be missed but I know she is at peace. I will be there in spirit and my prayers and thoughts are with you.
