  • Dear Marcia & John, I remember fondly visiting your home and your mom. Your mom introduced me to foods different from our families - like sour cream! I also remember her showing me the wallpaper books with matching fabrics and her explaining how that all worked! Marcia I bet you don't remember! After 12 years together I'm sad our paths never crossed again. Healing prayers. DonnaMarie Hitchman Ryan
