My dear Aunty M & family. You always made me feel so welcome, and reminded me how important it was to be with family. I wish I could have seen you again, but at least I know that my mom has good company now. To my whole Filinson family, I love you all and can't wait until we can be together to remember the wonderful woman she was.

Barbara Orville

Roy and family, as I said the other day, there are no words. Know that we are here for you. May her memory be for a blessing.

How can I say goodbye to Marcy? Marcy, my “Have a sunny day” girl. Every day was sunny for Marcy. She llit up the world. She may have left her body, but she will always live in my heart. We laughed, we cried, we were the Northwood “Jew Crew”. We did crazy things together and we worked hard together. There will never be another Marcy. She was and still is my sister, my forever friend. She loved with all her heart. She may have left her body, but she will always live in my heart. Her family was everything, and I grieve with you and for you. I will always be here for you. Rest in peace, dear Marcy.

Dawn and Steve Lavin

Though Marcy’s life was much too short, her family gave her the best memories to cherish. She and Roy were still like high school sweethearts and having her sister, daughters, sons-in-law and beautiful grandchildren nearby was everything to her. Our hearts go out to them in their grief, but know you made every day of her life very special.
