    Jon and Jeri, words can’t express how sorry I was to hear about Jim and Judy’s passing. Kind of romantic how things happened. Our parents were great friends and I’ll miss them, hopefully they are having a drink at the local casino and together again.

    Jon and Jeri, I was so very sorry to hear of your wonderful mother’s passing. Then, to hear of your father’s passing as well. They were both such kind and gracious folks. All the great times we had at the pool, at the hunting cabin, and just growing up as teens together. Mr. and. Mrs. Ross will always have a special place in my memories and my heart.
