Thoughts for Marilee Terwall;

    • Jill Brunner Gordon says:

      Marilee was my first friend in the world. At age 4 I rode my tricycle around the block and passed the house where she lived with her sisters and grandparents. I brought her home with me and proudly told my mother “look I found a friend.” We continued to be close for many years. I have fond memories of being in that house full of people and being treated like one of the kids. I thought of her grand parents as my grandparents as we hung around the kitchen while grandma cooked or all sat in front of a tiny black and white tv watching the Ed Sullivan show. She was a special friend and I have many important memories of that time together. Your friend, Jill Gordon
