We had Ed and Marie as neighbors and then they became my parents neighbors so we have years of memories. Marie and Mother were such good volunteers at the Library Story Hour and for R.I.F. Marie would hand out treats, perform puppets stories, cut out lots of crafts, dress up like a cowgirl or clown and just fill in anywhere we needed her. I am thankful for all the good memories.
