  1. Gloria and Buddy,
    I read of Mrs.Trexler’s passing on the internet site for the Asheville Citizen-Times. As I read I whispered a prayer for you. May God bless and comfort you in these days!

  2. Gloria, Jan, and Sharon, I send my deepest sympathy to you and your families in the loss of your Mother. I fondly remember your Mom from ‘too’ many years ago when we were in school at Emma. I’m sorry for your loss.
