Over the last three years me (AnnMarie) and Marjorie Rosenberg would gather Virginia, Ricki and Marilyn together once they couldn’t drive anymore and meet for lunch. Oh we enjoyed hearing them talk about the old days😊 so special. Ricki along with Sheree made the most delicious lunch of vegetable soup rolls, salad, dessert, and tea. Just delish! A beautiful memory to be cherished always. Rest In Peace Ricki 💗💗💗
