Cherie, I am so sad about your Mother's loss. You and I were in 4-H together and I recall wanting to be like your mother when I grew up. She could do absolutely everything beautifully and with finesse. All the best, Gale Seymour

Larry, Cheri and Julie...It seems impossible that it has been fifty years since we were growing up in Rock Port. I spent many hours in your home, and your mom and dad were always fun to be around. Your mom had a great laugh, and enjoyed our teenage silliness (or seemed to). She didn't miss any of your events, whether it was band or football, and I know she was proud of her children. However when I lived with Larry in Columbia, I soon realized that your mom failed miserably at teaching him how to cook!!!!! Maybe though that was really his fault; but he could certainly measure and draw little pencil designs of bridges. Cheri, I remember when you moved to Rock Port in 5th grade, and they had to get you a special desk so your feet would actually touch the floor. Of course we sat alphabetically near each other as our names both began "CHA". We took many fun band trips together, and then ended up going to the same college. Those were great times, and I can't believe how time has flown by, and now we're grandparents. Lynn and I are sorry for your loss, and wish for you to find peace at heart during this difficult time. Please reflect on the fun times that we experienced growing up...and know that your mom played a big role in always making kids feel welcome in your home. There is an unidentified vase with three roses.....one for each of you "buds" to take with you. Eric

Sorry to hear of Marilyn's passing. I had the opportunity to know her through different church activities. She was such a talented seamstress and showed her dedication through the homemade vestments. She may have been small in stature but she was definitely not small in personality. Prayers for comfort!

Your mother sounds like a lovely giving beautiful soul. I’m so sorry for your loss. May the memories you shared surround and sustain you all as you embark on this different journey without her physical presence in your lives. Grief comes in waves, May there always be someone there with a surfboard and a hand to help you ride it. Many hugs and prayers.

Sorry to read that Marilyn passed on. I had the privilege of working with her from 1984-90, when she was a volunteer with the Fairfax Hospital Development Council. She & the family are in my prayers.

Julie: I have thought about you every day since Carrie told me of your moms stroke. I so understand where you are at with the loss of your mom. I miss my dad each and every day, knowing they are in a better place is comforting, yet our hearts miss the physicality of being able to touch their hand and give them hugs. The days ahead will be heavy as you get closer to family gatherings and we miss when we were kids and the comfort of family around us at such fun times. Know that your mom loved you and your family incredibly, and is still with you in spirit. I close my eyes at times and can remember as a kid my dad putting his arms around me and giving me a hug at a time I needed it, I cherish that feeling. Go there in your mind, remember those times, cry if you need to, laugh when you think of a time that warrants it. We are human and we have always needed our parents in some capacity through our adult lives, we have always been their children just as we are that role in our kids now. It never changes. From my entire family to yours, I am sad for your loss, I understand and I miss her too. Our families were very close. As kids growing up, our families had a lot of fun doing things together! Much love to you......Kris
