I'm very sorry in hearing of Mrs. Marks passing. I have so many memories of her that go back more than fifty years. She knew my family as well as my aunts and uncles on my mothers side.we were a unique neighborhood.Her son Wordie was my Best Friend, like a brother really, from very early on. I spent a lot of years around her growing up.She was a wonderful parent and a great person to know.
