Sorry to hear about your Mother
BOB AND JEAN NOSS
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.
