I am sending condolences to Etta Jo's family on my behalf as a former co-worker (and lunchtime card playing friend) and on behalf of my mother-in-law Sharon Yunker. Sharon and Etta Jo were classmates and good friends. Unfortunately, Sharon is in ill health and not able to convey her regrets in person. I know she would like to send her deepest sympathies to you all.
