    Jerry and Pam,
    On behalf of the entire Gentiva Hospice Staff I want to express our utmost condolences. It was expressed in hospice patient care meetings that your Mother was a very spiritual woman. Her constant viewing of spiritual TV viewing was manifest in the Divine peace that filled her room. What a blessed hope that we can have in her eternal rest! Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Purdue family,
    We were sorry to learn of Helen’s death. My family, Woody & Evelyn Corwin, knew Gerald very well. My brother, Bob, worked at Gerald’s gas station in Kirklin in the mid-late 1950s.
    Suellen, a former Kirklin girl
