Dear Aunt Jo Ann, I have so many fond memories of Uncle Vern and you, especially from my high school years, when I was fortunate enough to be able to be loved and treated so well by you and Uncle Vern. Also my trip to visit in February of 2007 was very enjoyable. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Love, Jerry, Shirley and Family
