Sweet Leslie, we are so overwhelmingly saddened to hear about Marilyn. She was the most amazing Mom, not just to her own children but to mine too. Whitney loved her like a second mother. My heart breaks for you and your brothers. You and your family are in our prayers.

Grimes family, was so sorry to hear of Marilyn's passing. I first knew her in junior high, and went to EHHS with her. She was beautiful back then, and by her current picture, I can see she still was. Haven't seen her in over 30 years, but my memories of her are still sharp. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family at this rough time.
