Jerry , I don't know if you remember me. I am Dr. STanelle's daughter from Shawneetown. I used to stand in on weddings as witness for your marriages!
I see you are still in Hong Kong. We live in Paris, Il. now. Retired.
I would love to hear from you!
So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Daddy passed away in 2001.
I miss him so.

God bless you and your family. Gail

Jerry & Darrell,
I am so sorry to read of Gladys' passing. It was a long time ago growing up at Ridgway First Baptist! I now know what a blessing it was and the Lord's work that came from that church.
May the LORD continue to richly bless you in all that you do. I am so glad to have know you both all those years ago.
