2 Condolences for Marlene Ann Sund

  • Aunt Marlene,

    Mike and I will always remember you through the beautiful paintings you created for our home. We are grateful for the times and memories we were able to spend with you. We enjoyed seeing your face light up when we would make you cookies and the kids would give you small gifts they picked out themselves. We will remember how you would sit at the table and we would pick at the turkey during holidays after dinner. My best memory is of you standing on your front step talking to Mike while he worked outside in your yard. You were making jokes and smiling and laughing. That is a moment I will never forget! You were so happy and your face glowed in the sunlight. Now you are with your loved ones and Buffy! Fly high angel! You will be missed but never forgotten! Until we meet again… love you always!

    Mike and Carla

  • The last time we talked, after talking about our aging aliments,we talked about how wonderful Heaven would be . No more aching bodies and earthly problems. We talked about how we missed our moms and how great it would be to see them all again.Your dad and our Gramom. My brother and all of those that have gone on before us, in the Lord. So this is NOT a sad letter of goodbye but just a note to let you know that all of us are not far behind you and we will see you soon..Give them all a hug from me. Love and fond memories, Your cousin Judy.
