    Sorry for your loss. We loved Aunt Marlene and always looked forward to seeing her every Easter and Thanksgiving. The holidays won’t be the same without her. At least she is at peace and I’m sure Uncle Rich was waiting for her with open arms.

    Sutton Family: I’m so very sorry for the loss of such a special person in your family! Our family will greatly miss seeing her next door to my grandma and at Christmas Eve. Cedar Street won’t be the same without her, but she will always be there in spirit and can be at peace reunited with Rich again. Sending all of our love to your family, Katie and Kyle
