My heart is heavy. Memories of Marlys go back to my high-school days in Hallock MN. I was a year behind Marlys in school but we were pretty much attached at the hip during our high-school days. She was my best friend but we felt more like sisters. I will be traveling down memory lane for days to come remembering all the fun we had. My heart and sympathy go out to her family.
