I've lost a wonderful friend...brilliant, brave, wise and with a profoundly humane soul.

Kate Kinser

Dear Sherry and extended family--- So sad to receive the news of Marlyn's passing. She was fierce and brilliant and a true Yiddisheh Neshamah. Her life was a blessing to us all. So happy to have known her over the years. Sherry, I'll be thinking of you in the days and weeks to come. I hope to be st the levayah Friday.

Vicki Tamoush

Although it's been more than 25 years since I've had the privilege of seeing Marlyn every few days, to this day when I encounter a difficult person, I still find myself thinking, "If Marlyn were here, how would she handle this person with loving grace?" For those of us who are grieving her loss now, the question is how to handle these encounters--and the rest of our world--without Marlyn.

Rabbi Shulamit Cenker

We who were blessed to know and hear Marlyn and your quiet wisdom and sense of humor over these too few years will miss you. Sherry and extended family HaMakom Yenachem Etchem....

Joseph Zanoni

Dear Sherry, We are sorry for your loss of Marilyn and are thinking about you at this time. Thank you for your efforts to love and care for her. We know she will be greatly missed. Albert and Joe
