    Hi Marj: Many years have passed since we worked at CWNG. You were always a kind and gentle person. I remember when you got married (I was in the hospital giving birth to my daughter). When I read Larry’s obituary I felt compelled to extend my sympathy to you.
    I hope life has been good to you and that you and your son can weather this very difficult situation together
