You are all in my thought's. She was a wonderful woman, always very warm and welcoming. I have very fond memories of spending time at the Aziz House and with her children back when we were in High School together. May she RIP.

Marilyn was so dear to me throughout my high school years. She was someone I so enjoyed seeing daily. She was kind and loving always. I have followed Marilyn on Facebook for years. No surprise how family oriented she was. So sorry for your loss of wife, mother, grandmother, and all the roles she fulfilled. She was a dynamite woman. God bless.

So sorry to hear about your mom passing. Every mom is extra special to her children and your mother truly sounds like s gem! She will always be with you all in your hearts and memories. Then there will be those special moments when suddenly you sense this would be something mom would love and know she’s there in spirit!
Again our condolences to you all.

Marilyn, you helped me through some times- and knew before I knew, that I’d land on my feel. God must need an angel. I’ll see you again in heaven. Rest In Peace Gemini twin

A friend, a confidante, and second mother... you will always be in my heart. Until we meet again, I will cherish the time we had together. I will smile and say, “I know that was you.” Blessings to our family as a powerful angel now watches over us. I hope we make you proud. Peace, love and light Mar xoxo
