  4. Todd & Sally Peterson

    We met Marilyn & Bill at the Scoreboard several years ago. We called them the escargot couple as that is what they ordered every time we saw them there. I didn't realize at that time that they were related to Marsha and we started to golf on Monday nights with the Rockford Blacktop people and Marilyn. Such fond memories of both of them. So sorry for your loss. Todd & Sally
