Condolences to the Family
January 31, 2018
My sincere condolence to Larry and your son in the passing of your mother and grandmother, Rhoda Gamble. I was related to Rhoda, as she was my aunt. My wife and I travelled and moved quite a bit and when we finally settled in My. Joy, I always wondered if any of my mothers (Miriam Ament) sisters or brothers were still alive.
I remember your home in Bauseman, along the highway, yellow cottage type. I always rememberd your dad as Ed Gamble. When I saw his name and middle initial I am certain the E. must have stood for Ed. I met you larry when you were quite young.
I can remember 6 sisters names and 3 brothers. I don’t know who I missed. I remember Alice, Viola,Anna,Miriam, Alma and Rhoda. Brothers were Harry, I think, Earl and Alfos. Harry might have been Herman after his dad. If you want to be in contace with me I would love to know who’s name I missed.
My Name is Jay Ament, 1260 Tumblestone Dr, Mt. Joy. I am 83 years old. Have been widowed since 2012.
I pray for God to help you during this sad moment.
