Mary’s dad was Dale Kramer (egad it’s elad!) who was active with the CoCo Friends Disk Magazine (CFDM) before he died. Dale left behind a lot of CoCo stuff that Mary later came across, eventually leading her us. Mary Kramer joined the CoCo Community and has remained here as active as her dad was. Mary has come a long way with the CoCoNutz! E-zine and she asks that you help it grow even more by contributing new CoCo material of any kind. Thanks, Mary, for joining us and being a part of the great CoCo world!
