    Our hearts go out to Marlene and to all of her family in the loss of her mother. Gwen must have been a wonderful mother to have raised such a wonderful daughter!! Marlene has blessed the lives of a great many people, and I’m sure she learned it from her Mom. Our thoughts and prayers go with all of you!
