Dear Gail, I am so sorry to read of your mother's passing. She lived a nice long life, and I hope it was comfortable. She was always so nice when I came to spend the night at your house. May your memories bring you comfort and peace. (I am late writing this because I had sent you a card and it got returned to me weeks later.)

Dear Gail and Rhonda and families. How sad to see the passing of your mother. I really liked your parents. You should remember me as the Jefferson Co. 4-H Agent. Your Dad did so much for my career. I would call your Mom from time to time to check on her. I have a fond memory of her Dad skiing on his head on Cheat Lake. Great people. Thinking of you. Jim Staley.
