From Mom's 60th Birthday Book of Memories from Karen & Bob Birkemeier, May 1997

"Dear Marilyn

Though we have only known you for a short time, we value your friendship. You've endured the loudness & craziness of coming to hear the "Grind Daddy's" & we've had some really good times on those outings!
I know you've been through a lot in your 60 years & through it all, you've had the support of a Great family & lots of friends. You look wonderful, so keep up the good work, cause we want to have you around for another 60 years!
Hopefully, before too long there will be another bunch of "Grind Daddy's" to go listen to. So you will have to dig out & dust off the old ear plugs & be ready to party.
In closing, I'd like to say, you are a truly beautiful person inside & out, with a great sense of humor. Take care of yourself.
We Love You,
Karen & Bob Birkemeier"

Hi Anne -- I've been reading your blog off and on because it is, as you know, so darn sad. Her picture is so pretty, to me I see the same gal I liked so much at Atherton - always sweet, always caring, with a good sense of humor and just a nice person. I can begin to imagine what you are going through, though we are on the very outside of it thus far, but I admire your patience and dedication and kindness. I know she does not remember me, but she will always be in my memory. Take care, my friend, always.
