    Dearest Marilyn and Dottie. I am so sorry to learn of your sweet mom’s passing. Such fun memories of walking seventh Avenue to play at your house what fun we had! Your kindness of coming to Dawson’s when my mom passed over 17 years ago, touched my heart more than you’ll ever know. Even though I can not be there,I am thinking of you all and sending my prayers.
