Good bye my friend. September 30th would have been 47 years since we met. In elementary school and in our neighborhood we were two peas in a pod. I loved your humor and spunkiness. We would go long periods of time without talking or seeing each other and then when we did we took right off on our friendship which was full of laughter. I loved the summer I spent in Great Falls when I was 16 and it was you, Janice and me and me driving the old International Truck. Best summer! Take care my friend, you will be so missed but I am so happy you are no longer in pain and that you can use your wonderful voice again to talk and laugh. I love you Marilyn and will always have a place in my heart for you.
