    Hello—My deep condolences to the passing of Marilyn. She was a lovely person and ended up living a longer life than any of us expected. She was truly blessed.

    I knew Marilyn and Marsha through my Aunt Jean Grady, who was married to my biological Uncle Bruce Grady. Dorothy Jean Grady passed away in Florida in the 1990’s, and my siblings and I are trying to find a death certificate for her, yet to no avail. I was wondering if you had any information on her, as she, too, was from Paris KY (to the best of my recollection).

    If you have any documentation, we would be most appreciative.

    Thank you very kindly,
    Jane Kinsey
