Dave and I played a lot of cards with Marian and Bob when you
were just kiddies. We visited them several times also when they
moved to Sarasota. Sorry for your loss. That picture doesn't look
like Marian did when we visited them, but I know she'd not been
well. Hope the rest of you are doing good. God Bless. Karen Johnston
