Gordon and family.  I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your wife and Mother  I would speak to her when we went to see Myrna in Cooperstown   Myrtle always said hello even though I know she didnt know I was an Anderson from Binford originally.  Praying for healing of your hearts.  Keep your memories always in your heart
