Uncle Bob, Beth, Chuck, Pam and the rest of the family,

Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers. May you all find comfort in the memories you share. Aunt Gerre always sent the greatest Christmas cards, and seemed to enjoy the photo cards we sent her. She was always smiling and seemed happiest with her family around.

Our deepest sympathies, Linda, Rodney and Lorna Zanders
