    Dear Jerry and Family, I am so sad for the loss of Merce. We were very dear friends many years ago, however I remember her love for Jerry even as a teenager. We had great times. I keep her and her family in my prayers

    Greg, Brenda and boys: So sorry for your loss. We still remember the great time we had up at the cabin with your Mom, Dad, and family. She had a beautiful spirit, and was a fun-loving person. I know she will be greatly missed, and that the love and memories she leaves behind will be forever cherished. Our deepest sympathy and love to all. ~ Curt and Sharon Watts

    Dear Susie (yes, it’s been that long): I’m sorry to hear about your mother. Although I hadn’t seen her in many years (the last time was at Rochester Knitting Guild meeting), and haven’t seen you since the 1980s, seeing your names brought back fond childhood memories. Please accept my sympathies.
