Steve and I discuss a lot of things mostly by text message which lends itself to the pauses starts and stops deep thought process requires with regard to that Evil Knievel bike ride at age eight, the hot baked potato that fell on my head New Years at a fancy restaurant when I was six...or the new tires and small repair to my car...and more recently the topic was about unconditional love and the huge and great loss of his mom. In my correspondence with and talking to Steve and in witnessing Marilynn's beautiful memorial service I gathered that she is still teaching others...that lady "got it" about Jesus and that was beautifully reflected near the holy waters at the back of the church in the face and image of each of her loved ones...children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister, inlaws, friends. I think mothers have an inherent ability to love unconditionally. And Marilynn loved Jesus, they had a unique relationship, she understood her place and purpose and it must have been grace witnessing the two of them work together. Max Lucado is a favorite of mine among authors and the following excerpt that he wrote made me think of Marilynn and the things Steve has often shared about her. We are Jesus Christ's; we belong to him. But even more, we are increasingly him. He moves in and commandeers our hands and feet, requisitions our minds and tongues. We sense his rearranging: debris into the divine, pig's ear into silk purse. He repurposes bad decisions and squalid choices. Little by little, a new image emerges. Collectively all of you reflect Marilynn and Jesus love, forgiveness, happiness, understanding, endurance, patience and gentle encouragement just beautifully. In Peace Connie Palm

We are saddened to hear of Marilynn's passing, but know she is in a better place than where she has been for the past few months. Marilynn was a wonderful neighbor to us, and we enjoyed talking to her as she surveyed the view from the deck on the back of the house. We talked about many things, but most often, she would talk about the kids and her husband, Bob. We are sad that we have lost those conversations, but remember her with fondness. God bless, Marilynn....surely you and Bob are together again.
