I'm Karen Lustig, a member of the Grandparents Connections National Team. It was my pleasure to meet Marian Kaplan and Alice C. over Zoom at several of their group meetings. I will never forget sitting in the audience at the National Board meeting where June made the plea for Belle and Katie volunteered! It was an amazing moment for all of us, and it's so wonderful to see them both looking well and beautiful so many years later!
