    Through the years, it was always a blessing to spend time with Rudolph and Marguerite. We always looked forward to their visits in Loris. After we moved to Colorado, Ken and I had special time visiting with them in their home at the beach. Thankful I am for both of them but remembering Rudolph especially at this time. Praying for all of the family. Sandra Hardee Tabor
