Dear Andrea & Beth Ann
My heart goes out to along with my prayers for Aunt Jerry (godmother). She was the Pertile with a genuine sense of humor always refreshing to talk to.
I would visit her when she worked at the Supermarket during my business calls. If time permitted I would skip on over to Lincoln High to visit Uncle Dee. They have always occupied a special place in my heart.
Beth and Andrea,
Nancy and I send our sympathy to you in the passing of Gerry. We have many good memories of your mom and dad going back to high school days.
Andy and Beth,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. I know the two of you must be heart broken. I always LOVED your Mom and her unbelievable enthusiasm at the softball games. But most of all I appreciated friendship and of course the honesty she showed to me every time I was around her. You will be in my prayers today and in the future.
To Andrea and Beth,
My heart is heavy today upon hearing of the passing of your mother.She was a wonderful woman and will be truly missed.She was our best cheerleader at our softball games. I always loved your family. You will be in my thought and prayers always.
