Dear Jen and Mike,

With deepest sympathy and love in the loss of your Mom. She was definitely one of a kind, and a perfect match for your Dad. They were quite a pair! I will always be grateful for their kindness and generosity in  welcoming Barry and I into the Gum Tree community. I will never forget how they opened up their home and hearts to us over the years. Your Mom had an infectious laugh that could be heard all over the  Octorara Valley. She will be sadly missed by you, your families, friends, and the entire community.. I'm sure she's toasting your Dad right now. May she rest in peace.

With sympathy and love,
