    Deepest sympathies to all the families. I was on the same school bus with Marjorie, and her sister Marcia was in my class in grade school at Plainfield. Her parents, Mr and Mrs. Harold Priest brought 4-H to the boys and girls in the Plainfield area. I am still in touch with Dorothy Priest Manning of the family. My deepest sympathies and condolences to the families.
