I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Maris. She was such a sweet person and wonderful friend. We were childhood friends and spent lots of time together. Several times a week we would walk to the record store, ice cream shop and drug store to shop. Keeping her family and friends in my thoughts and prayers. Good bless.
