Steve and George:
Growing up in New Haven, and Hanging out at the Morris Cove Sea Wall and going over the Haritos family home many, many, times. Marline was more than a friend - she was like a little sister to me, and watching her have fun and growing up with the rest of us was priceless.
She will always be in my memories and in my heart.
God Bless.

My condolences to the Haritos family and friends. I was a classmate of Marlenes at Eli Whitney and worked with her at Stop & Shop. She was always pleasant to talk to, and be around. Years later my wife and I had met her, as she opened our account at Bell Atlantic (now Verizon). She had a knack at making connections, and being in the moment, good Kharma from a good person.
