    Ken and Charlotte, Sorry to learn about your sister passing away. Hopefully she didn’t have to suffer too much and nice she moved to your area so you could be with her.
    Ken, its been a long time since we have talked. We moved to Dilworth from Twin Valley in fall of 2007. . We lost our beloved LLoyd Jan. 4 in 2015 so I have been getting used to being alone.
    So Marilyn had MS – I have a nephew in Parkersburg with MS too, has had it for many years, he will be 58 in May. That disease is no fun to see someone suffer with.

    Stay warm. Arvilla J (Meester) Lien
