    I was very fond of Marjorie when we worked together at the telephone company switchboard in Cherokee during our high school years. Seeing the account of her death made me sad about all the years we were not in touch. Her youthful marriage and my moving far away ended our friendship, though it should not have. I have thought of her often over the years, and I send my sympathy to her family.
