    Gary, Amy, and family,

    You have our sincere sympathy at this difficult time. May God hold you in his arms in the weeks to come. Your mother was a great and gracious lady. Always loved seeing and talking with her when she lived on the farm. Heaven has gained another wonderful lady, and we have lost one, but she will not be forgotten.
