What a beautify celebration and tribute to your mom's life, Marin. What I'm assuming are your words make me fee like I know her. And much like Di said, while I didn't get to know the tree, the apple of her eye is a living testament to your mom's legacy. <3 Ryan
I will miss my dear friend. Such a delight to share time with. Such a quick, searching mind to discuss all manner of issues. Rest well
I remember all of Mary Lynn's kindness as we arrived and resided for a short time in Dallas, summer of 1984. We were orphaned from Wisconsin and had virtually no friends at the time. Mary Lynn, John and Marin immediately made us feel at home in this foreign land of Texas. Marin and our daughter Katie Jo, were best of friends. Mary Lynn was key in our mental survival that summer. She was "the greatest" thru it all. FMarkMoore/MD, Emergency Physician
I didn't have a chance to spend time with your mom, Marin, but I feel that I know her, in all of her richness and complexity, by knowing you. You've done her proud, and she will live on in your writing, your humor, your wisdom and your loving nature.
A special lady! This obit makes us all believers and lovers of life.
My best memories! Many might not even know this... But I was a little girl and would love Mary Lynn and John to visit at Aunt Mary's house. I was little and thought I wanted to be inlove like them when I get older. It was like a fairy tale. I was devastated when I heard they separated. She was a beautiful stronge women and you always knew what was on her mind.
Marin and family,
Mary Lynn - a wonderful woman and loving mother. I will miss my dear friend. Many thoughts and prayers are sent to you and your family. Love, Margaret Smith
