Dear Sandy, saw your Mother's picture and knew right away who she was. She was so friendly and kind to me. I'm sorry for your loss. Hope your family is doing well.
We worked together @ Brasel & Tomlin in the mid 70's a very long time ago.
Take care!

To the Family of Marge -- We were sorry to hear of her passing. We first became acquainted with Marge at First Christian Church in Moline. We used to kid around about being "twins" because I (Warren) had the same 4-11-28 birthday. God Bless--Warren & Zora Cook
