    Dear Jack, Kristin and family, Lisa and family, and Adam and family,

    We were so sad to hear about Marijo’s passing. So many good memories of our times together as couples and families. We all “grew up” together-well, some of us did (Mike)!

    There are no words to descibe our sadness. But, knowing her love of family and friends, her caring spirit will be protecting and guiding us with God in heaven.

    Love,

    Mike, Marsha and Rob
