We just wanted to offer our condolences to the family and friends. Although we never met in person, we felt we knew Marietta (Mom) through the many stories and fond memories shared by her daughter Rita. We always looked forward to the decorative towels she would send. Always in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless - Fred & Mary-Ann
