    Jeanne: I was notified by Gary Starr of the passing of your husband. My sympathies to you and your family–as I see his picture, my memories of our time in confirmation and youth church group (Pastor Bonn!) come back to me. It was a special and important time of my life, and love that you and Gary created a strong and loving bond. My prayers go out to you and yours, especially during these holiday times, when “be of good cheer” is difficult to envision.

  2. Cheryl O says:

    Our thoughts & prayers go out to the family. Gary is at peace & surrounded by all the family who also left us too soon.

  3. Susan LeRoy says:
