Gerald, Barbara and family - We deeply sympathize with you in the "homegoing" of your mother on Friday. May the Lord comfort your hearts and fill the lonely place in your lives. The memorial service was very meaningful and the piano music was beautiful and comforting. Love and prayers, Frank & Mary
