Marie was a good friend. I was sad to hear of her passing. Trisha, Jim, Julie and John, hugs to all of you. I know you will cherish the memories you have of her. I'll never forget our "meetings" at the Tollgate. Pat Thomas, Barb Helm, Pat Smith and I use to tell you kids we had a meeting and we would meet at the Tollgate and have a great time.
