    I so loved as a child spending a week in the summer with my Aunt Marylou on Balboa Island to get relief from the unrelenting sun in Arizona. That is where my love for the beach and the sea grew. She taught me how to drop line fish, sail, spot beautiful shells and driftwood, make sand drip castles then watch the tide slowly take them away. My favorite was riding in her 1964 Porsche 911 that she bought in Germany which she drove way too fast. I loved to look at her slides and photographs of all the travels she did in Europe and imagined it was me that had been there. She was quite a prankster and had a great sense of humor and I will miss her very, very much. I love you Marylou! I am glad you will suffer no more and back together with your whole family.
