  1. While working as a team member in WHO SPX office camp Kolkata, I had the opportunity to meet her when she visited Kolkata India in 1976. I had shown her around the city and she was quite delighted. She sent me a gift on her return to WHO New Delhi. She was very nice with motherly affection. It was a pain for me to hear about her demise after so many years. May her soul rest in peace.

  2. On behalf of my father, Toby R. Medina, I sign this book. Toby worked for Marjorie for many years doing yardwork and errands. He has always thought of her with fond memories. He is saddened by her passing but knows that she is finally resting. He is aware that her family had passed on before her and that she had special friends who cared for her estate and her care. We celebrate her contributions to work she did so faithfully.
