    Dear Marilyn and Nancy, I remember your Mom and her many talents, and my heart goes out to you at your loss. She was a special person and Port Royal loved her. At 85, I look forward to the time when Jesus calls me home but until that time, I enjoy family and friends and husband Marlin who is 86. Love, Miriam
