"HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARILYN
It was through Hal...my running and biking partner for years...that I was introduced to Marilyn. On many a long runs when the time and miles turn into listening and therapy I heard about life and times from earlier years.
I heard about a young Marilyn, A beautiful woman with white hair at a very young age.
I heard about children and family, illness and recovery.
There have been sad times and close calls. Now it's about health and life. It's about devotion and dedication.
It is a celebration for Marilyn and about Marilyn.
Congradulations on your 60th Birthday.
You have been a real inspiration.
