Aliscia....your mom will certainly by missed. I never saw her without a smile, and she always greeted me wherever we met. Her presence at FHF always impressed me, and the kind way she dealt with all the personalities there. Sorry I could not attend and tell you these things personally, but I know, as you do that she is with her Savior right now.

Memory....Uncle Ben and Marilyn came to live with us after the divorce so I had a sister for five years and we grew up together with our cousins on dry bayou. We lived close together behind the bayou later. We didn't call those the good old days but looking back they were pretty special. we always had the fourth so we at least saw each other once a year. I am so grateful that she was able to be there this year For all the wonderful years thanks and much love. Walk on slow, I'm not far behind. Mb
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I really got to know Ms. Marilyn through prayer group. She was witty, smart, compassionate and all around wonderful woman that always had a smile on her face and God imprinted on her soul. I remember the first time I heard her pray. I thought, this is a woman who has a personal relationship with God. She didn't have to tell you she had a personal relationship with God, she showed you in her actions and prayers. Even though I only knew her for a short time, Ms. Marilyn will forever be a part of my life. I know her family will miss her greatly but she lives on with each of you.

One of the dearest souls I've ever known. Marilyn was such a blessing to me when I worked at Families Helping Families. Her kind heart, patient demeanor, and steadfast faith were an anchor of sorts for us all during difficult times. She was a rock and will be greatly missed. You are all in my prayers. God's grace and peace carry you.

My Mamaw was an amazing women. I am so thankful for the time we had with her. There's not many childhood memories of mine that she's not a huge part of. I NEVER considered her a "Step" grandmother, and I'm almost positive that she didn't consider us step-grandchilden. My Mamaw is preceded in death by her husband of 27 years, my Pappaw Black, Fred Anderson Black. Also, she is survived by granddaughters Melissa Black Fowler of Monroe, LA, Stephanie Black Coker and her husband Wesley Coker of Calhoun, LA, & Aimee Black Ferriss and husband Jonathan Ferriss of Mont Belvieu, Texas. Grandson, Bradley Anderson Black of Monroe, LA. Great-grandsons Carson Fowler, Kason Coker, Kannon Coker, & Kyler Coker, and great-granddaughters Lilli Fowler & Mia Klaire Fowler. We all will miss our Mamaw Black terribly, but can only imagine the amazing reunion she had with our Pappaw in Heaven! Knowing that she is healed from all her pain brings us great comfort and peace!

There's so much to say about Marilyn. She was such a light in people's lives. She would do anything for anyone and never question it nor look back. Alicia, I know that your life has dramatically changed...all of your lives have. But, I do know that you are a true mirror....true reflection of your Mother. I know the days to come will be difficult, to say the least. May God's PEACE and love help you all to cherish her memories and to keep her memory alive through the wonderful people that you all are.I love you all and miss you all.Deda

I remember Mrs. Marilyn's sweet smiling face the first time I entered FHF. She assured me that everything was going to be OK as long as I loved my child enough to "fight" for as long as it took to find answers for my child's issues. Well I followed her advice and I finally got the answers I needed. From one mother to another I knew she was a kind gentle soul from the day I met her. She is now pain free and rejoicing with the angels.
