  1. Marion Rogers :

    Dear Anne,
    Just a little note to offer my condolences to you on the loss of your mother. I remember her from ‘long ago’ when we saw more of each other, and I remember always thinking what a wonderful woman she was. She took such pride in her family and I hoped I could be like her when I got ‘older’. Of course we, too, are now ‘older’. How did that happen? I know you will have many memories to enjoy. But it’s always so very ‘final’ to lose the last of our parents, isn’t it.
    Please know I’m holding you in my thoughts and remembering the days when we saw more of each other.
    I hope you are enjoying your new home and have settled in. I am still settling into my new-to-me little digs since my move.
    My best to you and Terry,
    Marion Rogers
