A few days ago I had the honor of attending a memorial service for Marlene Tolleson, a quiet servant at the Kershaw County Council on Aging. For more than 20 years, she worked tirelessly on behalf of those who needed her most, our seniors. An advocate, a counselor and sometimes firm encourager, the folks she served knew that they had a friend and advocate in Marlene.
