    I have been trying to find her for some time. I did not know she was in Frankfort. I worked with her, being there at L & G for 21 years. We used to garden together at work. I mean talked about gardening, lol.
    Years ago she gave me a little start of a white Lilac bush. It grew to be 9 feet. Every spring, it would be one of the first things to bloom. I would think of her. Oh, how thankful I was to know her, and always wanted to see her again. If I would have known she was here, I would be bringing her flowers from my gardens. Marilyn Nall-701 E. Wabash St.-46041

    I worked with Chris at Landis+Gyr. She was a fun person with a good soul, and a little bit of orneriness. Fun times with her. Prayers to her family.
