May her memory be a blessing
Marlenas Darling Lambchop is bereft She is used to Marlena being away from home She knows her human mummy has gone .A journalist told me today that Dogs who are bereaved when their human passes feel grief 50 percent more than humans She is a darling dog and Marlena was her world They were so close it was amazing to watch Can dogs pass away with grief do you know
This is the most beautiful story. I never had the joy of meeting Marlena, but always loved her warm, wonderful and supportive presence on social media. She will be missed. May her memory be a blessing, and much love to her family. x
She will be missed. I read her in the SF Chronicle Food section when it was still one of the best in the country and was so glad to catch up to her again on social media.
May all who love Marlena come to a place of peace as they journey through grief
Hello. Marlena was my good friend in junior high and high school, in Sacramento. We kept up since, but occasionally, loosely. Could the person who posted the announcement please send me Alan's home address, as offered? Thank you. (I know Alan.)
In addition to her lovely and thoughtful writing, Marlena gave us the gift an entire cookbook on Macaroni and Cheese and for that, I am forever grateful.
She will be missed and she was so loved!
Oh my heart I am so sorry to hear this. I followed her way back in the day when I was a grad student at UC Davis, astonished by the California produce. May her memory be a blessing.
Oh Marlena, I miss you so much! We just love our Jack Russell Terriers-----more than food I think..............you Fly High Tootsie, you FLY HIGH!..................until we meet again...and we will cook and swap doggie stories and have such fun...
Marlena graciously welcomed me as a Facebook friend after I gushed at her regarding her Chronicle career. We never actually corresponded, but she did "like" many of my Jewish and gastronomic posts. She was unselfconsciously "her," artlessly artful, and a terrific writer. As others have said and will say, she will be dearly missed.
