    Dear Lynn… It’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I came across your web site and was totally devastated to hear about Marla’s passing last year. Our one time, “very” close relationship had me feeling that I had, and wanted, to offer you my deepest condolences to both you & your family. I have nothing but very fond memories of your sister, and I can’t imagine what you’ve gone through.
    You have always been on my mind, & I hope that life is treating you well.

  2. To June and Virgil Moshansky I was just thinking of Blair and whatever he must be up to. He had such a love for fun and life. I was sad to hear about Marla and then Blair before her. I have great memories of Atlantic City and skating and up to too much fun with Blair.Once he snuck out at night and came and I snuck out too out the window and we went down to the old swimming pool. Those were the days-it was all so innocent.
    My hearts go out to you -losing two children.
    If you’d like to exchange some more memories about Vegreville,I’d be happy to remenice.
    Bonnie C Westrom
