    Marella and Jerry, and family,
    I’m so sorry you had to say goodbye to your precious mother….wow! 103 yrs. old…I’m sure she could tell you many many stories about the history of life and what amazing changes she has been able to witness.
    You two have taken such good care of her and I’m sure she passed on with joy and love in her heart because of you two and all of your other family members! I just learned of the funeral this morning, (Friday) and just got back into town…. so am unable to attend as I would have liked….but you are all in my prayers, for the Lord’s grace to sustain and comfort you! Blessings, in Christ, Gloria

    Hugs and Hand shakes,
    Blaine Fercho
