  2. Dear Cousins, I spent 2 very precious summers,before and after my high school senior year, living with your mom and dad (and Bob and Karen),working at the full counter Dairy Queen in North Chicago. My beloved Aunt Marilee was the mom/big sis I so needed. As I approach my 80th year, I try to share the love she modeled for me with every person I meet. She is at peace, may all of you, Bob, Karen, Dave and Linda,feel that peace, Love Sheryl
