I am truly blessed to have known and worked with Marilyn for many years. Over the years as one of her supervisors, one could not have ask for a better or more dedicatedly person to her work, friends, and family. I will miss her and wish her family, her friends, and her colleagues well. Marilyn leaves us, but she has left a little in all of us to show us how to make life a better place, to be a better person, and to try to love all. Thank you my friend for your example.

I heard of you Mrs. Ivy, from your loving daughter Tonya, who considered you as her best friend first and then a loving and caring mother. She always mentioned of you as a very loving and compassionate woman who did so much for her family. Although I never met you, but I still feel I knew you thru Tonya. You have left behind a very beautiful and loving family and you will always be among them every moment of their lives. Soar high and above in the land of the Lord Mrs. Ivy and may God Bless your beautiful soul. Please do keep an eye on your dear ones you leave behind as they need you now more than ever! regards, Sunny Nehra
