to "Gerry's" family I send a sincere hope of God's help to lessen the sorrow of losing your Mom, Grandman, sister. Gerry belonged to the Senior's group with us for a number of years. She was always willing to help, and engage with the activities of the day. She also belonged to the Red Hat Ladies of the area. The two groups send their deep sympathy at this time. We will not be attending the service due to our age and the seriousness of the times.
