"Marilyn and I" - memories from Carol Hopkins

"One of the really good memories is how we got to know one another. I was singing in the choir and Shelby used to give you and your sister nickels to put in the collection plate. He became known as Shelby nickelman.
We began our friendship when I was trying to give a Derby party and needed Julep cups. She loaned me some and helped me to understand the tradition.
Another time we all went to the new Louisville Zoo to see THE animal.
Marilyn talked me into my first microwave and gave me some great recipes. We talked most days and were the very best of friends for many years. I miss her a lot and wish I could see her more often.
Love to you all,
Carol"
