Hi Marilyn, I think you are my friend from grade school. I just saw an old picture of you in a box and tried to search for you on Facebook. It was there that I found the info on the loss of your mom. You have my sympathy. Please feel free to write me at cleyendecker@yahoo.com Christa Tesner Leyendecker
