Karen there are no words to express the sorrow I feel for you and the boys & what you must be going through right now. I have some great memories of the times we shared when we lived next door to each other, Bob and his garden, Bob and his pond, Bob and his goldfish. Going to visit and him yelling at Haley to be quiet and she kept on barking anyway. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, you, the boys, the entire Gelston family.

Love Always Jan and family
