Sincere condolences from Tennessee - My Cousin Marilyn was a beautiful and thoughtful lady she always remembered her family by sending cards on all holidays and also remembered you on your birthday, I know for sure she did to me and my sisters and I’m sure to all family and friends. May she rest in peace.
