Karen and Larry,
Both Gordon and I are thinking of you and your families at this time. My parents, Bobbie and Frances Rusmisel, and we, as kids, always enjoyed visiting with you and your parents back when all of us were young. And, Gordon's family has many memories of fun times and great card parties over the years with your parents, also. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Your Mom was such a sweet lady, with a smile for everyone.
