My dear Marion, So many years have passed since we had seen each other, but I always thought of you and Paul. I was in the same grade as Ray and we were such good friends. I will see you again, under very different circumstances. May Jehovah bless you and keep you in his memory. Soon you and Irene, my mom Marie Burd, Russell Burd will all reunite and start our lives over again in a perfect world. Sleep my dear friend until we see each other again. Love you always Cindy Burd Griebel
