A fine lady who I know will be sorely missed.My sister Marion (who would have been 80 this year and I go back a long way with this family. Chuck and Teddy,the Dales and I played a lot of ball in the lots around the Beach. And Mickey...what can one say about him that is not already known. That warm smile , and always ready to help someone out. When I "cross the stream of life ". I do hope to see people like Gloria there..she kind of guided kids like me and her little brothers to do the right thing.And my sympathy goes out to all of you that are here.
