From Mom's 60th Birthday Book of Memories from Nancy Seymour (Billington), May 1997

"To Marilyn on the Occasion of Her 60th Birthday

How can I ever thank a friend
For all she's done and said and been
For always calling at just the right time
For sharing Garibaldi salads sublime
For listening with care to all my woes
For giving me courage to meet my foes
And better yet for the laughter and fun
Through all these years under the sun
Imagine, we met only by chance
And here we are some 37 years hence
How did we ever get this old
Ah! friendship is truly better than gold!
No words or rhyme could ever express
The joy or privilege or thankfulness
In honoring Marilyn, our shining STAR
On this her very best birthday, so far!

Much love to you, dear friend,
Nancy
