Dear Shirley, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother as well as your father & brothers. I remember as a little girl that we used to all play together when we lived on Marsh Ave. I actually remember playing doll with you and I never liked playing with dolls. I remember Ray and I going to school together and often walked home together. All good memories, and all the ceramics your mother would make. God bless you and your family during this time of grief. sincerely Dawne Hendrickson Thomas
