    Norma, If you get this, I would like your Email address if you have one. I don’t do Facebook. I was looking at my Christmas cards from last year and found Dick’s newspaper Obituary and wanted to get in touch. I could have written, but tried other
    venues. So sorry, but think of you often. I have an old Email address so I see your name often, Love Darla
