Rita: Watching Norms funeral, and listening to Lauries tribute took us on a trip down memory lane.
Remembering not in any order, time at both your apartment in Florida, my folks apartment, the lobster parties, Laurie and Marks weddings, our aniversary party, your big birthday party, all the Aventura resturants he mentioned, The Greek Isles, J Marks, Catfish Deweys.....and most of all how thankful we were to visit with both of you in October......Keep all of these happy memories...they are a blessing.
