Jon and I extend our heartfelt condolences for the passing of Aunt Marian. I have fun memories of the time we spent together in Monroe and Newport those many, many years ago. That wonderful chance encounter we had with Tom in Colorado, and today’s social media environment have allowed us to reconnect as adults.
May your faith and family and friends be a comfort to you. With love, your Cousin Lisa
