    I am very proud of my wife Marilyn. Not just for accepting this Job, but for her reason for accepting it. We talked about it, and prayed about it. Marilyn said people come to Primrose to live the last years, months or even weeks of their life. They want to live that time in a beautiful place, and be happy living there. Her years of professional management experience will help her make this possible to all who come to Primrose Mansfield. She told me she knows that she now has an opportunity to help a lot of people, and that is what gets her excited about this new jpb.
