My thoughts and prayers are with you in this sad time. Mary E;;en was my first girl friend in grade school at Mt. Olive School. I used to spend the night at her house when they lived at Five Points in Marion. She was a jewel and I had lost track of her in later years but never forgot what a treasured friend she was to me.
