Candle lit by Carol Robida Kennedy My sincere sympathy for your loss of Mary Lee and I was very upset to see it. She and I were friends as children in Pueblo. Her mother and dad were good friends of my mother, Bertha Robida. I too am 69 years old. I was gone from Pueblo many years as I married someone in the Air Force and we lived many places. When I came back here I attempted to find her but our parents were deceased and no one I asked knew of her. If Jacki Carouthers can contact me I would appreciate it as I would like to hear more about her life and family. My sincere sympathy to all of you. Sincerely, Carol Robida Kennedy (
