Gerri, Jack, and family -

My condolences on the sudden loss of your mother, Gerri. I echo what Don said, it's easy to determine where you learned some of your considerable leadership skills after reading about your mother. We'll be thinking of you as we plant the flower garden at Brookside Park back in Ames this weekend.

May the grace and peace of the Lord be a comfort to you, now and always.

Dear Gerri and family,
We are sorry about your Mother's passing. She was a very special lady and will be deeply missed and forever cherished.
We always enjoyed her visits to Iowa. She was a fun lady to spend time with!
Know we are with you all at this sad time.
With love and sympathy
Melanie and Guy
