    Larry and family, I know this is a time of sorrow for all of you but I’m hoping you remember the love your Mom shared with each of you. I think that for a Mom the best legacy is the children she raises. Larry she did a great job! You and Victoria honored her everyday you were raising your 3 kids by instilling in them the love and knowledge she shared with you. I hope the love of family and the wonderful memories you have of your Mom will comfort you.

      Dear Worthen Family
      Thank you so much for your kind thoughts during this difficult time. It is hard to accept but we will continue to find strength and support in our family and in friends like you. We can’t thank you enough for all your help and support as we traveled to Maryland to be with family.

      Thank you for your kind words and for the donation made in Mom’s honor. She would have loved The Gentle Barn. She loved all animals and supported many different organizations. We miss her everyday but find strength and support in our friends and family.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. If this can be comforting to you, just know that she is no longer suffering (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and now she, as well as others who have died, awaits the wonderful resurrection that Jehovah God has promised (Acts 24:15). I hope this message brings you comfort.

    • Bob n Doreen kramer says:

      Thank you so much for your thoughts. We are still reeling from her sudden passing. I know she is playing with dozens of animals of many kinds today and from now on. She can now run them all.

    I worked with Marianne when she worked at the United States Department of Agriculture in Beltsville, Maryland. She was an extremely nice person and animal lover. She will be missed. God Bless her family.
