  1. Gary and Lana, I’m so sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing. I read it in the Butler paper which I received today. We lost my Mother in January and Daddy last April so I know what you are going through and my prayers are with you and your family. I have such fond memories of growing up with both of you and I felt I needed to send a message. Joann Gaston King

  2. We are so saddend with the loss of your mom. We want you to know we are thinking of you.
