I want to offer my condolences. I’m a resident of the 9th floor and only knew your Mom for a few years. We would often meet in the halls and chat a little. I always left her with a smile on my face because she usually had a joke or a humorous remark to make. She has a terrific sense of humor and I will miss her. Again, so sorry for your loss.

My very deepest condolences to all of you. This hit almost as hard as my own mother. When I think of Beebe Merleeeen I see her standing in the kitchen, (probably making cholent for Jack) laughing so hard that tears would be rolling down her cheeks. I am so glad I was able to talk to her while she still knew who I was and especially for getting to facetime . The memories are just endless, and they are all a blessing. Rest easy now.

So sorry for your loss. Marlene was the sweetest kindess person I knew. When I came to Pitt she called me, had me over for dinner and made sure I was ok. She was very funny and no one was spared her barbs when she was making a point. Rest in peace.
