Gary and RuthAnn, I'm sorry to hear the news about Ma!!  She always had a special way of treating me and everyone for that matter like family.  See attached picture of Ma and me on my last trip to Oregon in 2015.

We extend our condolences to your family on Jean's passing.  I remember being in Oregon with my folks shopping on a Friday or Saturday night downtown near Felker's drugstore in the mid-1960s and running into uncle Irvin while he was delivering groceries to one of his customers.  It was always nice talking with Hank and Jean at family gatherings.  Cherish the memories.
