Marj and I have been fast friends since high school -- and it was during our high school years that I met Ms. McMurchy. She was always available to her family and friends, and supplied Marj and I (especially hungry me!) with a steady supply of after-school cookies, baked goods and treats. There was a time when I was more at home at Marj's house, then my own.

Thank you to the whole family for the kindness you've all shown me. My sincere condolences for the loss of your loving mother.
