Dear Jack and family,
I was so saddened to see my dear old neighbor’s face in the paper this morning.She was one of a kind. Her faith has taken her to a higher realm now. I will always remember her when I look at the piano picture she brought back for me from a trip that she took years ago. She was a wonderful lady. Oh how she loved her dogs. Jack please know that we are thinking of you  and sending peace to you and your family. 
                       Love and Sympathy,
                        Ken, Becky, Brett Zercher
