    To Mar’s family with my deepest sympathy.

    I met Mar in Jerry’s Diner about 2 years ago. She greeted me with a Hug and a Smile on that day and every time I saw her after that. I’ll miss Mar popping in the diner to meet with the morning bunch before work. Now Mars does have that shiney halo!!

    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of this wonderful woman that I knew as “Mar” from our chat room Jerry’s. She has often helped me and gave good solid advice whenever it was asked of her. She will be sadly missed and our prayers are with her and her family in this time of sadness.

    Dear Keith and family:

    I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your wife, and mother, as well to those to whom she was daughter, sister and friend.

    I knew Keith (“Ernie”) in High School as a friend, in Hermansville, though we have not stayed in touch we still have mutual friends in the area.

    I am very sorry for the sadness and loss, I am sure Marlene was so special to you, Keith, and your children. I will pray for your hearts to be strong, and your family’s love to help you through the difficult days and nights. My thoughts and prayers to you.

    Dear Keith, Lana, Richard and Brit .We are so sorry for your loss .Marlene helped us through some hard times. She will be sorely missed.

    God took the fragrance of a flower
    The majesty of a tree
    The gentleness of morning dew
    The calm of a quiet sea
    The beauty of the twilight hour
    The soul of a starry night
    The laughter of the rippling brook
    The grace of birds in flight
    Then god fashioned from these things
    A creation like no other ever seen
    And when his masterpiece was through
    He called her of course

    Rest in peace dear friend, we love you.

    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss.
    I didn’t know Mar (as in mars_halo) personally, but she was a member of my JSD family.
    Please be assured she is in a safe place with the Lord.

    We were so sorry to hear about Peanut. I kept my whole family advised after I received your emails. Your entire family has been in our thoughts and prayers, as they will be in the days to come. If it were possible we would be there for the service on Monday. We will be there in spirit with you. Our prayers and thoughts to you and yours.

    I knew her has mars_halo in chat. Mars was always so kind and supportive. No matter what I went through, she always wanted to hear about it and would listen patiently and always managed to make me feel a little better about things despite the problems she lived through. I remember when she had her car accident and how she glossed over it but wanted me to explain why I was feeling so dismal. We miss her a lot in chat and we always will. My sympathies to Keith and the family. I send you lots of hugs and prayers.

    Keith and family,

    I am so sad to hear of your loss. Mar was truly a wonderful person and I consider myself lucky to have known her. She was always so happy and so proud of her family. I’ll treasure the times and laughs we shared together.

    You are all in my thoughts.

    Keith, Lana, Richard, Britany,

    My heart goes out to you all at your loss. Mar was a trusted friend who i’ll miss dearly.

    Although I’m not a very religious person, i’d like to share something with you that gave me comfort when my mum died several years ago.

    What a friend we have in Jesus
    All our sins & grief to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    Oh! what peace we often forfeit
    Oh! what needless pain we bear
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer.
    Have we trials & temptations?
    Is there trouble every where?
    We should never be discouraged;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithfull
    Who will all our troubles share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.

    Are we weak & heave laden
    Cumbered with a load of care?
    Precious Saviour, still our refuge
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer;
    In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
    Thow will find solace there.

    Rest in peace my dear friend Mar.
    Your friends in Australia will miss you.

    Keith and family:

    Obviously, I sent the card out before my newspaper came…I was so saddened to read of Marlene’s passing. She was a sweet, generous person, and I know your lives are forever changed by your loss. As I mentioned in the card, God will give you the strength to get through this – It won’t be easy, but you have the thoughts and prayers of many people who truly love and care about you…myself included. If I can be of any help, please call.

    God’s peace to all of you.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Mar’s family, and my condolences as well. She was one of the good people and didn’t deserve this. But sometimes, that guy upstairs has other plans. I would like to think I’m one of those people she touched on the Internet, we aren’t all bad. She will be missed. Hugs and Kisses

    I always enjoyed talking to Mar on the net. She was a fine person and was always upbeat and just had a smile for everyone. She will be missed.

    You will be sadly missed by many from all over the country. Our chats consisted of Mars and her “halo”, of which she is wearing proudly now, smiling down on us as if to say SEE I DO have a halo. Keith if you ever need us just pop into the Diner and someone will be there. My condolences to you and your family.

    Peanut will always hold a special place in my heart and mind. I have great memories growing up next door we had a lot of good times. I still can’t believe this is real. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Please accept my sincerest condolences on your loss. In chat, Mar was always pleasant and friendly, and a pleasure to have a conversation with. Jerry’s Diner will never be the same without her. I’m sorry I never got the chance to meet her in person. My family’s thoughts and prayers are with you in this most difficult time.
