    Marlene/Sari will be missed so much. Such a sweet lady with a fun sense of humor. I will never forget her kindness to me. Be at peace friend and my deepest sympathy for Julie, Kim and David and your family. Praying your grief is replaced with wonderful memories of her. Hugs.

    To the Family and Friends of Marlene, I am sorry for the sadness in your hearts. I got to know Marlene while she was at the nursing home. I enjoyed my many visits with her and any care that I was able to provide for her. She shared her family with you and wanted to know all about your family. She loved sharing her jewelry making results with the residents and this put a smile on their face when she would put a necklace around their neck. If I helped her out with any task, she was very appreciative of the help. Hold on to all the wonderful memories that you have of her and know that one day you will be able to share them once again. Until then, her love remains with you here on this earth. With Caring Thoughts and Prayers, Kathy Grill – CPV
