    To Connie, Elizabeth and Steve... My heartfelt condolences to you on the passing of your Mom-as my sisters and I affectionately called her "Ms Mary Lou". Although it's been 50+ years,I'll never forget her piling us all in to her station wagon and hauling us all-Mom (Rosalynd Nobles,Carla(Bottles,Melanie (Nobles) and my self-"Rock".. all down to Johnnie Mercer's to swim all day long (we even went and left Melanie there by mistake! (oops!) Mary taught me how to plat canasta (I never was much good!) But your Mom was a sweet lady to us and I never forgot that. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord..

    Connie, Mary Ellen and Steve: Marvin, Hazel and I send our sympathy. It's been many years since we've talked with you, but we do remember all the fun times we had talking on the CB radio and visiting each other. I still remember us sleeping in the camper in the backyard and car at the beach. I have a parrot who speaks a little and I remember the black Myna bird you guys had. Marie Johnson
