  1. Hello Frank and family,
    This is Dale and Nancy across the street. So so sorry to hear about the loss of Marilyn, we all had some great neighborhood times together and think of you often, you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    Dale and Nancy Sedlak

  2. Dear Logan family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Marilyn. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.
