The Cylar Family,

Marie and I were classmates from the 1st -12th grade, both attended 16th street Baptist church and were among the 1st group of debutants in Gadsden. We had a lot in common we loved the Lord and the class of "61". Marie surprised me by attending my 75th birthday party in Atlanta. I will surely miss her and the talks we shared. I know your heart is heavy now, may your memories bring you some peace until your heart heals. Praying for the family.
