Alex MI had the pleasure of knowing both Marilyn and Bert prior to their move to Peoplecare. I have fond memories of them, they were always smiling and laughing and it was beautiful to see just how much the loved each other. They even trusted me to take care of their beloved cat Casey when they had to move and it was a honour that I will cherish always. Happy to know Marilyn is now with Bert. I am keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers.
