    the family of Gwen, I was sorry to see that your mother has passed. We didn't see each much but always had a nice visit when we did. She was a special lady. I was sorry to have to miss the service. Jean please tell John and Joey they have my sympathy for them also. Let your memories bring you smiles, your family and friends give you comfort and God grant you peace.
    With sympathy, Janis
