Allan and Marianne eventually made their home at Little Blue Lake near Greenville.  Some of Marianne’s passions included anything red, casinos, crossword puzzles, all Detroit and college sports, and most of all, her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    Jim… I surely appreciate your comforting thoughts. Yes it is really “tough”…but fortunately have a caring daughter and three sons as well as neighbors and friends helping and looking out for me.
