    Oh my, I just happened to be looking this morning to see when a friends service is today and here was Marie’s obituary! I am so thankful to know. I must get in touch with family members.
    Marie was the one who inspired us with family history. Her picture looks so much like her mother, Aunt Rachel. I would love to be able to be in Fairview next Saturday. Will see what happens. My love to all of the family.
