When it was time for songs, Auntie Marilyn sang with heart.
When it was time for hugs, Auntie Marilyn held you tight.

When it was time for a meal, Auntie Marilyn ate with zeal.
When it was time for a laugh, her laughter filled the room.

Songs, hugs, meals, laughter… when it came to our family, Auntie Marilyn never held back on what mattered most.
She is now truly free, joining Grandma, neither of them to be lonesome again.
