My cousin, Marilyn was a very special person. She was my confirmation sponsor and I still remember the lovely striped dress, she bought me, for my special day. I also remember her whispering the answer, to one of my classmates, who had blanked, when the bishop asked her a question. I have many happy memories of our get togethers. Pat Duquette
