Dear Kent, Mary Jo, Faye Ann and Dan,
Was saddened to see of your Mom and Grandmother's death. Terry and I have such fond memories of living next door to both your Mom and Dad for 10 years. They were such a big part of Terry's growing up years. They were both very special people. Will keep you in our thoughts and prayers during this time.
