Hey Kids, You just lost your first Mom, and I just lost my "second"
Mom. She will always occupy a huge part of my life as she tolerated and prayed constantly for me to be blessed, and never,
ever complained about my sometimes loud guitar music coming through the walls late a night. Instead, she kept praying and
then rewarded me with the best Christmas cookies on this planet. I am certain that she is smiling in Heaven, knowing that
she influenced me for the Lord so much during those years a close neighbors. And I love all her little ducklings as family
as well. Feel blessed to have been born to such a wonderful woman. I am blessed by her never wavering love. We all will see
her again in the presence of the Lord Jesus. Amen!
Denny Ruth and Family

On behalf of the whole Stought family, I'd like to say that we could not have asked
for a nicer, gentler, compassionate, friendly roommate for our Mother, Grace. We were very saddened to hear about Gerry. We'd
like to extend our sincere condolences to her wonderful family and hope their faith and loving memories help to see them through
this difficult time.

Her son Robert L. Adams, Jr., was a friend of mine. I've been
searching for his family, and his Mother is the only one I have been able to find, so far. I think he had a sister. Would
love to chat with her or any of Roberts relations.
