  4. My deepest sympathy to Deb, Don and the entire Dolezal family. Marilyn was so sweet and kind. I cherished our visits and having this second Mom for this short time. She spoke of her family often and looked forward to their daily calls. She always had friends calling her. We had some good laughs and before we knew it three hours would pass. She had the gift to gab! Enjoy a beef and onion pizza (Marilyn’s favorite) in her honor. Cherish your memories and love for Marilyn. I’m so sorry for your loss.
