    Marie Kerry Frisch and my Mother, Elsie Rehmus, were best childhood friends as they lived a farm away from each other in DuBois, IL. Marie made my parents’ wedding cake and came to their wedding in East St Louis, IL. The last time we saw Marie was at Traveler’s Cafe on Hwy 51 outside of DuBois in 1996. Marie was working in the kitchen and she and Mom had a good visit, They were like schoolgirls and could not hug each other enough. Mom died in 2005 at the age of 88. I have pictures of the two of them hugging and laughing. God Bless you Marie!
