Memories

I was very close to my first cousin, Marilyn. We did things together as pre-school children. I vividly remember visiting the Peck family on their farm. What great fun we four children (Marilyn, her brother, my sister Elaine and I) had! That was only one of the many stories I could relate to you. Our sympathy goes out to all of you. This is a great reminder to all of us that we live and die under God's plans. I am especially noting that my birthday is September 18 and I was born only 5 months earlier in 1926. Call me when things quiet down (610-527-4590) or e-mail me at d2maass@gmail.com. Perhaps this will be an opportunity to relate with each other. Your relatives: Dorothy and Richard Maass

Thinking of you at this difficult time. I remember your Mom so vividly! She was always so kind to us "Janes kids"........ even after I put a whole egg in her microwave and it exploded all over (I think I was babysitting Kristen and Scott at her Country CLub house!). The Janes' family is thinking of you and remembering Marilyn with fondness.

I will always remember sitting with your Mom at an open house for Amy. After chatting for awhile I really hoped she would adopt me so that I could call her Mom too! She was a delight!
