Thanks Leora....those March birthday celebrations were always good times. And your mom and dad shared the same day for a birthday.

My thoughts and prayers have been with you, the family of Monroe, since I heard of his passing. I have many good memories of our family being together with yours -- especially of when we celebrated the "March Birthdays." I hope you have found/are finding healing ways to remember and celebrate your husband and father's life during this already difficult time.
