I have warm memories of Aunt Mary! She was the one who convinced my Mom that I should start using Merle Norman cosmetics - which I have been using ever since! I am so thankful for that! She was a great example of how to be organized and neat (which sadly, I wasn’t always!). We loved to swim in their pool and I remember a wonderful family get together when Uncle Jack was in town to visit. I miss all our precious Aunts and Uncles! My love and sympathies to all of you - Sandy, Vicki and your families. Kris (Harman) and John Racek
