So very sad to learn of Meann’s passing. Her father and mother were lifelong friend’s of my folks and she was always such fun to be around. For Harvey and her family, this has to be such a great and devastating loss. My heart and my prayers go out each of her family.May she rest eternally in GOD’s love and in his love
