Gary and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I Knew your mom forever and she was such a nice lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sorry for your loss. My Mom passed away in October so I know what you are going through. So let our Mothers play cards and enjoy nature together in Heaven. My Mom, Dorothy, loved Cardinals. No deer in her yard. With much love, Donna Jo Elling.
