Henderson, Marilyn L.'s Guestbook

On a day we know will come but we are never prepared, my family and I extend our deepest sympathy.

Don Arrocha

She is going to be greatly missed in time we all shall meet again. The words of I AM tell us to rejoice for those who have left us. And cry for those that are being born into the world today. With faith and hope, love and patients we will understand it better bye and bye.
