Dear Anne and family,
I was so sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing and even sorrier that I couldn’t be there for the service. I still remember the good times when the 4H Club met in your arena and you helped find me our two best horses Noonie and Rebel. Wishing you the best with your family around you during the holidays.
