    I always liked Marie and we keep in touch. The last time I saw her was at our class reunion I did not realize she was sick. I hope it will be ok if I try to concact one of you. I would appreciat it one of you would eamil me at the above email and tell me what she died from. I know Marie looked for her brother for a long time. I did all I could do to try to help her find him,which we did not. I am sorry for lost. I hope to hear from one of you. M. Bolt Bemis
