    Marilyn … My Loving Sister
    Words can not express how loved she was not only as my sister but as a mother to her children, wife to Buddy, daughter to Edna and Dan and kind friend to all she met in her lifetime. She cared about everyone and every pet and animal she met.
    God … Please take good care of her as she was a SPECIAL person.
    Your Loving Brother, Ron Prospeck and Family
