    Sorry my message is so late to you all. Sorry to hear of Marlene's death. I have fond memories of when we lived next door to each other in Brevard. I did not know of the service until I read it in the T.Times on Mon. Would loved to have seen you all.

    Sarge, Sorry to hear about your loss. But I know that she was blessed to have had you as her husband. I did not know her but I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I was thinking about you and that I have always appreciated your professionalism and the things that you taught me. May God bless you.
