My condolences to all the family and friends of Marcia (Lock) Durian.  Having spent two years at Garfield with Alf and Marcia I don't remember that they were related.  I am thankful for all who keep up this website.  I am glad for all you are teaching me and helping to appreciate friends from beautiful memories.

We all have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful my dau-in-law is having the dinner at THEIR house, and I can cook and bring a few sides. I'm thankful for living an amazing 3/4 century, and for every day I have left! So thankful for my health. Thankful for my family and friends, and my roots in Alton and USA.
