Marlon and family we are so very sorry for your loss. We loved and enjoyed all the years we shared square dancing and sharing many good, good times together. Kate was an amazing woman that we respected and loved. Kate rest in peace, dance among the angels.

So sorry to hear about Kate. Thinking about Mahlon and his family and know how he did everything he could to make Kate's last years as good as they could be. Mahlon lived the vows of his marriage and then some. I will try to remember her happiness in going out to eat and enjoying square dancing with her honey. My sympathy to you all.
