  1. What a sweet friend to all her high school classmates. She was sincere and generous. Love to all the family. Cookie Johnson Kirschner, Bowie

  2. Marlyn, I am so sorry for your loss. You know she was my second mother. I will always remember when I’d drive up and honk and she would be so embarrassed. Or when we would go to Nocona and she would watch out the sliding glass door knowing that we weren’t really going where we said. I miss you, Garlene and Mama Lena so much. Wish I could have been there. FRIENDS FOREVER. RIP GARLENE. Prayers for the family.
