Condolence & Memory Journal

I recently learned of Marilyn's death and was sad and shocked. I haven't seen her in years but as Darren and Tommy Jr know, we were very close and played every sport we could get into when Pam, Tommy and Darren attended Mater Dolorosa school together. I am so sorry for your loss.
