  4. I met Marilyn and Carlyle when I was 3 years old when my family moved to Watford. We lived in a big house made into apartments and they were on the side of the same house. Mom and I went to Marilyn for our haircuts. Her Dad was my Dad’s boss at Imperial Poultry and even after we moved away we visited Doc and Mrs Clark whenever we were in Watford. We knew the whole family. Later when I moved back to Watford Doc and Helen were my neighbours and when Mom and Dad came to visit my husband and I they often stopped to see the Clarks too. I ran into Marilyn many times at the grocery store and saw Carlyle usually at the post office. It was a pleasure to know the whole family. May she rest in peace reunited with her best friend and husband, her parents, and brothers. Cherish the memories.
