Gerry, Another holiday in the year of 1st's has past. Christmas was bearable only because I know you're with Mom, Dad, Jayne and Jimbo and Cindy's parents and sister. I hope you and Jimmy R. are getting some tee time. All of you are remembered, missed and loved. The 442 is tucked away in nice warm storage for the winter. The restoration that's been completed so far is beautiful, but I bet you know that. We're all trying our best to be happy as you wished, it's not easy. Rest easy Gerry, until we meet again.

I’m so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God’s promise of a resurrection where we will be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away and will never be separated by death again - John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3,4
