    What a loss of a sweet and dear woman of God. She always was a great blessing to me and our prayer ministry and our church at South Hills. May Ken and family know God's gracious hand these next days and months. We love you! Mike & Carolyn

    Ken & family - We are so sad to hear this news. I am praying peace over you in this sad time. She was an amazing lady, so full of fun and laughter, and one fabulous prayer warrior. She is missed. Love and Blessings - Doug & Rita Claar.

    I am sorry to hear of the loss of Marlene. She has fought the good fight and run her race and has been rewarded with the loving embrace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please remember that you will see her again and, once more, feel her embrace. God Bless you all and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I remember first meeting Marlene approximately. 21 years ago when Amanda was three years old and attended Clement Prechool in San Jose, CA. I caught up with her again at South Hills Community Church several years later and thought "no wonder she was so full of light, she knows Jesus!" The name Love was perfect for her, because she showed love and kindness to everyone she met. I will miss her dearly. ♡ Please join me in praying for her family during this difficult time of grief and mourning. :(

    We are so sorry to hear about Marlene's passing into glory! She will be missed. Ken, you and Marlene had such a great impact in my (and Phil's) life!! I trust that the God of all comfort whom you both exude, will comfort you, give you peace and bless you with rest for your soul! May her service bring glory to her King and many come to His light in profound ways! Bless you, brother! We no longer attend South Hills but remember you both warmly.

    I'm saddened to learn of your great loss. Marlene was truly a beautiful lady inside and out! Will always remember when your family "sported" my mom and me around San Francisco! My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Juliet

    We are so sorry to learn of Marlene's passing, but comforted to know she is in the arms of our Lord. She was a blessing to us at South Hills Community Church as we explored this thing called Christianity and learned to walk in the faith. Thank you for sharing her with us. All our love, Jeremy & Leonor

    She was a lovely person and mentored and ministered to many women including me a couple of times. She had such light, and grace, and love about her. I remember the last time I saw her at Church. She will be missed. But oh how glorious that she is with our Savior where there are no more tears, no more suffering, and so much joy and worship. May her family be comforted and find peace during this difficult time.

    Thinking of you and your family Lisa. Thank you Lord for the wonderful influence you had on Mrs. Love's life, so that her daughter Lisa would have an impact on mine.
