    #16 Link from Marilyns webpage, both mariages are mentioned. Hate to say this Theo but you need to do better research, took me all of a minute to find that link on Google.


      dude are right. i swore this wasn't on her site when i looked last week

      when i read the NM piece about her living alone in a giant house, it made me sad. women DEF don't "need" to marry....i just found it very uncanny that she didn't even date. being solo all through one's life is no way to go. turns out i was wrong
      May the fetus you save be gay


        theo, i appreciate the fact you brought her up. probably many didn't know about her at all, let alone credit her with light weight chairs. i think that was the best thing to come out on this thread. she is an incredible person. thank you.

          Well I do kind of need someone to do some of the heavy lifting sometimes and fix the toilet. I need a neighbor with benefits or some such arrangement

          i wish i could be put to more use than fixing a toilet
          i think men and women need each other in equal measures.
          For me nothing beats a woman's sincere smile.


            Yes, Cass! Either way, she is an accomplished woman! I hadn't heard of her before. Thanks, Theo!

The early Quickies were so well made that I know a guy who still uses one he bought back in '82 I think it was. The customer service was above reproach, now it's one of the worst companies to deal with. The Company went downhill once she got bought out, same with Top End and a few others.

              She is one classy lady for sure Theo; much like you.

              I'm sure she has her choice of suitors. Sounds like a double standard doesn't it? If it were a guy we'd say, good for you for playing the field and being so independent; with a lady we say the opposite.

              Godbless Marilyn, she is defintly one who revolutionized the wheelchair industry. Thanks for the article Theo, right on!
              I agree 100%. Marilyn is the one who made wheelchairs classy and not something you'd see in an institution or hospital. I have only used two brands of wheelchairs: Everest & Jennings and Quickie, and love my Quickie chair! I have had my Quickie Revolution wheelchair for almost 6 years and its so strong and sturdy that I will probably have it for another 6 years.

              I also noticed that Sunrise Medical has bad customer service recently. Its like they could care less about helping with getting wheelchair parts. Its like Top End and Everest & Jennings: once someone else bought out the companies, their customer service went downhill.
