    Oh Mary Ellen! The fun we had so many years ago!! Playing spears way back in Jr high! Chinese fire drills, you driving the “get away” car prom night, just hanging out. My life was never boring when I was with you. My sisters babysitting your kids! Although we didn’t keep in touch, I still tell stories of some of our escapades! You’re gone way too soon and I’m so sorry. Keeping Ky and Natalie and their families in my prayers.
