From their first date on a dirt track race to sipping wine next to a vintage Porsche, the road trip Marlys took with Dennis was filled with adventure, laughter and most of all ~ love.

The road goes on forever and the memories will never fade.


To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - Marlys’ family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the


Lustgarten Foundation

Founded in 1999 in memory of Marc Lustgarten, The Lustgarten Foundation was established to advance research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer while raising public awareness and providing support for patients and their families. Initially considered an orphan disease, the National Cancer Institute allocated only $16.2 million for research into pancreatic cancer. With the Lustgarten Foundation not only providing new sources of funding awarded to innovative researchers, but also raising awareness, the National Cancer Institute now dedicates more than $150 million annually toward finding a cure.
