Guestbook

When we decided to head to Alabama instead of returning to Eastgate we knew we would be missing stopping to visit with Gerry either on our way to clean the north hall or returning to put away our supplies. So sorry to hear that he has passed. At least we know that we will meet again someday in a better place.
