The first time I met Marlys was at a party at their home in Nerstrand. Marlys was busy cooking in the kitchen and Manford sitting at the dining room table. The house was busy with lots of grandkids and I remember it feeling like "home". Manford had a big mouth billy bass(singing fish) and he was so proud of it, replaying it for all the kids. There was a lot of love in that house and I am happy to be a part of that family now. Thinking of everyone this week and those to follow. Love and prayers. Emily
