    Hello Kids, I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s death. Merv came and told me this morning. We had a good visit on the phone about 3 weeks ago. Shared lots of memories. Wanted to get up to see her but time just didn’t permit. She knew how much I cared. Love and prayers to all of you. In Mary’s memory…. Love, Mareta
