Sorry to hear about your Mother

Sending you my Love Prayers and Sympathy. Janet was a big part of our family. We have a lot of cherished memories. God Bless You. LOVE

Mr. Gary Mentzer, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I believe we met a few years ago when I visited Kennedy Valley Church of God inquiring about the Morrison Family Genealogy. My father saw your mother's obituary and I felt the need to connect and let you know I'm thinking of you. Take Care.
