It doesn't seem so long ago when we went to Las Vegas--the first time there for all of us. We soooo enjoyed spending that time with you, as well as all the times at your Marlton house, playing cards and enjoying Phil's great pasta and gravy!
Our love and prayers go out to your great, loving husband Phil and the rest of your family, with hope that knowing how we feel about them will ease the pain they're experiencing.
We will miss you Marian--hope the slots are loose in heaven!
