Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of all of you in this time of sorrow. Reflecting back of days at Grandpa and Grandma Hutchings when the Gann gang would arrive. How we would beg dad to take us down to see all of you.
Although dad doesn't understand things, I know he would be deeply sadden by Alice's passing. He always had a special place in his heart for her.

So sorry to hear of Aunt Alice's passing. Lots of good memories of summer visits to the Gann household or the Ganns at our house.

I wish I could bring mom to the service, but she is unable to ride for a very long distance. I will be sure and let her know and my thoughts and prayers will be with all of you during this time. Aunt Alice was such a wonderful and hard working woman. I can still hear her laugh, but now she will be reunited with your dad. I loved the pictures, they bring back such good memories. Hugs from your cousin, Linda Bryant Parson.

My sympathys to the entire Gann family. We were virtual neighbors in the 1970s when they lived on Lyons street.just off Main Street in Marissa. My twin Lewis and I hung out with Randy; occasionally Barbara would tag along. Older son Jim and Judy were our youth leaders for awhile at the Baptist church. I remember fondly when Patricia married Rollie and inherited the older Pflasterer kids. Blessings to the whole family.
