    You have my deepest sympathy and I pray for you and your family’s strength and comfort during this time.. I remember your mom and dad and Lanny and you coming to mom and dad’s house, (David and Marion Geralds) and it was always a fun time with them. They were full of life and I have such great memories of your dad’s smile. I know they are all having a joyous reunion now. You will see them again some day.
