  • We are so sorry to hear about your mom. We did not know. Jerry has been away and he has a show in Morden this Wkd. He was also away last wkd. in Moosejaw. So he took all the papers to read in the evenings, and he saw the notices. I know it doesn't help with the loss of your mom, but we loved her. We would have come to the funeral, if we had known. I know it is difficult to think of everything, just so you know, we would have been there. Memories of Gladys-- We loved she had a motorcycle and when we got her Christmas cakes with gumdrops Jerry said he had nothing better. We probably took them from mom & dad but she always put an extra cake for Jerry & me. She was a wonderful woman. Would love to see you & Rolf, and Carl & Val sometime. Colleen & Jerry
