I was so sorry to hear about Mary's passing. I have so many memories of Mary and Lowell when we lived on south main. I am sure they got so tired of us bugging them but they sure were fun. Lowell do you think your square is still under the shingles on the garage? We sure broke you in good for having your own kids. You are great people. May she rest in peace. God's love to all of you.
