    Dear Kanar Family
    I had the honor of being Marilyns daughter in-law. When I was married to her son Ronald Kanar.
    My Mother in -law was a doll. I loved her very much. Her Laughter and great smile brought such joy.
    She always had her hair and makeup done every day. I know she loved me. She will be a ray of sunshine in heaven.
    Love Mary Purcer ( Kanar)
