Mark and Gail,  Your mother was such a positive and dedicated woman in our church. To put up with us for all those choir rehearsals every Wednesday, picking us up from our house, sitting in the cold church if someone didn't turn the heat on, and trying to harmonize with a variety of singers. Loved surprising her on her last Sunday with former members. Thinking of her fondly.

Hi Gail and Mark! 
So sorry to hear about your mom. My mom is with me here in Oneonta and we were reminiscing about growing up with you all! We have such pleasant memories of your mom! 
Thinking of you at this time...

Gail and Mark,
    My sincere sympathy on the passing of your mother. My earliest memories of church involve your parents.  My love of church music started with your mom and continues still. She played the organ for our wedding 50 years ago.  She was a great lady.
