Carolyn Gross/Hunt(Wednesday, August 22 18 01:02 pm EDT)
I want to extend my sincerest sympathies to John and family and to sister Margaret and family. I wish I was able to be there to extend my wishes, but I'm not in good health myself. However, my goodness, I could write a book on the good memories I have of our two Gross families. Janet and I as kids on the farm; get togethers on holidays at the David Gross house for one of the wonderful meals Aunt Etta would serve; and on and on. Uncle Dave and Aunt Etta were our favorite relatives and Janet and Margaret were our favorite cousins. It's so sad when we lose one of our favorites like this, but sadder still when we're not able to meet at a time like this. My thoughts and prayers are with you today that God will wrap His loving arms around you and help you through this awful time. God's blessings to you all.
