  1. Friend

    Gary, Ellen, Blair, and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about your mother/grandmother’s passing. She was such a sweet, sweet lady. I enjoyed seeing her and talking with her whenever she was volunteering at CMH.
    My prayers are with you all. May you seek God’s comfort during these days of grief.
