Dear Uncle Ed, Nancy, David, and Edward, I am able to smile through the tears thinking of Auntie Dutch's smile and the way she could make me laugh and just get down to the basics - no need to make things complicated! She and Uncle Ed were such a perfect match! Although it has been years since we last saw each other - you all are forever in my heart. God surely did smile on all of us for placing Gertrude Karn in our lives! Your niece and cousin, Lorrie Glenn
