Remembering the love Marilyn shared

As the whole world around us has been grieving some kind of loss or tragedy during this difficult year , nothing could of prepared the Gotay family for such a loss at the hands of the newly found COVID VACCIONATION.  As she prepared to become an organ donor , and getting CLEARED as being a healthy match for a loved one she was informed she must receive the covid vaccine first. April 9th was the day of injection , later that evening little did anyone know she would say her last goodnights to her sisters , the last i love you's to her children as they went to sleep. 4:30am , April 10th , her  11 year old daughter found her face down unresponsive.  She was pronounced DOA .  An amazing mother , loving sister , aunt and friend she was . Those who knew Marilyn , knew her love was so strong people of the same just gravitated towards her , our neighborhood children loved her and she treated them as her own . The saying " it takes a village " she truly lived up to .  In a world where we are all spreading ourselves so thin , our Marilyn was there for us all with a smile each and  everytime. This campaign was put together by a close family friend to continue to take care of all she did while she was here  and return the love that was given day in and day out as she leaves behind her 2 children she lived for , and her sisters that she bonded an ever lasting team with . All donations will go to the family .
